Have you tried it with just the A record? Generally (I'm not sure if it
is an official standard or not, think it is) if an MX record is not
available for a domain, a mail server will try to deliver to the root A
record for the domain.

Subject: [m0n0wall] MX support in DNS forwarded


Apologies if this has been discussed in the list before (I searched but
could only find this thread:
http://m0n0.ch/wall/list/showmsg.php?id=24/90 with no responses).  Is it
possible to define MX records in the DNS forwarder?  I know that dnsmasq
supports it - if it's not possible through the GUI, is there a way of
doing it through exec.php?

Basically, I want to set up a mail server for a LAN that is not
accessible to or from the internet.  I know that I can do this using a
Linux distro such as SME server but I'd rather keep the m0n0wall as the
router/dhcp/dns server and not that the SME server exposed to the
internet or serving DNS queries.
