        The first of course.

        Your observations are flawed. The first is tried, fails and then the
        second is tried, and this yields the final status in the logs.

          I know that when receiving email delivery gets made to the lowest MX and then in sequence if the first doesn’t answer etc.

          Lets say however that we are backing up email and messages get queued on the 3rd mx record, when we attempt to flush should it deliver to the 2nd mx record, or will it deliver to the first?

           

          We are seeing that it’s going to the second which happens to be down at the moment, but not delivering to the first and want to make sure that this is what happens…

           

          Thanks!!
