View Full Version : MX Forwarding

I have a question on MX Forwarding:

Someone else is controlling the DNS for the domain name. They setup MX forwarding for the e-mail to go to the IP address that west host has setup for the account.

It takes about 3-4 hours or more sometime for the e-mail to come into the accounts. Does anyone know what would cause this and also how MX forwarding works?

Does the mail go to the DNS server that forward it to the West Host mail server, or does it by pass the DNS server and go directly to the West Host mail server?
