Hi,

We are configuring our own dns servers, and I can get all the records in the forward zone working except MX.

$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA ns1.asdf.com. root.asdf.com. (
        2014092201  ;Serial
        3600        ;Refresh
        1800        ;Retry
        604800      ;Expire
        86400       ;Minimum TTL
)

@ IN    NS              ns1.asdf.com.
@ IN            A       52.253.38.67
ns1     IN      A       52.253.38.67
IN      MX      10      asdf.com.
www     IN      CNAME   asdf.com.


Can you check and let me know what needs to be done?

omarfarid is right,

You should have "A" records for the MX records that you are creating, else it wont work.
