DigitalOcean DNS - IPv6 MX Records
This is my configuration for a Twitter-specific mail server I run in the London DO DC.
MX twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 22.214.171.124
MX twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk tw.mail.maxsaxedesign.co.uk
AAAA twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 2a03:b0c0:d0::146:e001
AAAA tw.mail.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 2a03:b0c0:d0::146:e001
A twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 126.96.36.199
A tw.mail.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 188.8.131.52
I am unable to configure IPv6 MX records on DigitalOcean DNS and Fasthosts DNS (need to pester them too).
I have found a way round the issue.
Point the MX to a subdomain which has A and AAAA records tied to the subdomain. This way it will be forwarded for the MX to use.
MX > A > IPv4 address
MX > AAAA > IPv6 address
twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk > tw.mail.maxsaxedesign.co.uk > 184.108.40.206
twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk > tw.mail.maxsaxedesign.co.uk > 2a03:b0c0:d0::146:e001
I should not have to do this convoluted workaround. Please may DigitalOcean add IPv6 MX DNS resolution?
