In RFC 1035, I am curious about section 3.3.6, which reads:

3.3.6. MG RDATA format (EXPERIMENTAL)
+
/                                                                                                       /
/                                         MGMNAME                                               /
/                                                                                                       /

where:
MGMNAME A <domain-name> which specifies a mailbox which is a member of the mail group specified by the domain name.
MG records cause no additional section processing.


QUESTION:  I'm trying to understand how this all works -- it seems the domain name specifies a mailbox that's specified by the domain name.  Can someone explain this better?

Here's how I understand it:
1. There's a mailbox that is a member of a domain.
2. There's a mail group that is a member of the same domain.
3. The mailbox (1) is a member of the mail group (2).
4. MGMNAME is a domain name that specifies the mailbox (1).  [Not sure at all on this one.]

I'm guessing then that MGMNAME stands for "Mail Group Member Name."  Beyond that, though, I'm afraid I can't be too much help without reading the whole RFC.

Not necessarily abandoned; just hoping for an easier to understand answer.

Sarah,

If you needed an easier-to-understand answer, all you had to do is ask.  Is there any particular part that you're still unsure about?

Sorry. I am really just trying to understand how MGMNAME is used and what it's used for. The definition it comes with is too confusing for me.

You know, I could keep trying to guess, but they would be just that - guesses.  It may be best just to delete this question and start over.

LearnedOne - I propose a "delete with refund" so SarahMoore can ask this question again.
