While I think it's pretty anal-retentive to require a mail sender to have a valid MX record, I don't see what would be so hard about setting up MX records for this scenario:for that matter, if i were running a very very large mail farm with high volume in one or both directions, separating the inbound mail handlers (MX hosts) from the outbound mail relays would be something that i'd seriously consider doing as part of the architecture. this would interact very badly with the mail rejection strategy outlined in the original post in this thread.
inbound-mx01 IN A 192.168.1.98
inbound-mx02 IN A 192.168.1.99
outbound-01 IN A 192.168.1.100
IN MX 10 inbound-mx01
IN MX 20 inbound-mx02
Or am I missing something?
