Default Email Gateway?


#1

Hello!

One of my clients was bought up by a larger company and is switching all of their hosting and email needs over to the new company’s host. One of the techs at this new hosting company sent me their MX records, and then asked me for the ‘default email gateway’ used for my client’s email.

I’m not exactly sure what this is, or how I’d figure it out. I wanted to ask here before harassing the DH support staff, so thanks in advance for any help!

Default mail gateway is mail.example.com, or whatever their domain is. This is for inbound and outbound mail.
