Manage Destinations

After incoming messages are processed, they are delivered to the destinations configured in Incoming > Destinations - this is typically the final mail server for the recipient. Delivery is attempted to each of the destinations, from the lowest priority to the highest (as with MX records). Destinations with identical property values are attempted in random order and do NOT have deliveries spread across them.

The Destination Routes you set up when adding a domain are listed here automatically but you can also add any manually.

In this page you can:

  • Add, edit and delete destinations
  • Perform a connection check
  • Perform a catch-all check - Discover whether the destination mail server is a 'catch-all' for a specified domain (accepting mail for any address at that domain)
  • Check Routes for Open Relays
  • Carry out a Telnet test for a route by clicking on alongside the route.

Add Destination

  1. In the Admin or Domain Level Control Panel, select Incoming > Destinations. All existing destination servers are listed
  2. Click on + Add a destination at the top of the page
  3. In the Add a destination dialog enter:
    • Priority - delivery is attempted from lowest priority to higher
    • Host - destination server address

Perform Network Checks on Destination Server

You can perform a Connection check, Catch all check or Open relay check on a destination server.
