Should not affect it.

Technically speaking, MX records are just for inbound mail. You can use
outbound mail on any SMTP server that will allow you to deliver... and
it doesn't have to have a MX record in DNS.

What you're asking would be more dependant on your setup, rather than
DNS. You need to configure the smarthost to only allow incoming mail
from the antispam servers's IP address... and leave the SMTP engine
alone otherwise.

Subject: [THIN] OT: Mx record configuration

Sorry for the off topic, but I know many of you have run into this issue
before.  We are currently putting in an antispam server.  After email is
processed by the anti spam server it is then transferred to our
"smarthost".  We have two mx records; one for the antispam server, and
one for our smarthost.  We were doing this for our testing phase.  Now I
would like to delete the mx record for the smarthost so that all email
incoming will go to the antispam server first.  My question is, will
that screw up my smarthost?  I want our smarthost to continue to deliver
outgoing mail itself without going back to the antispam server for
delivery.

Thanks so much in advance
