Email server ok on different domain?

Postby sestores » Wed Nov 16, 2016 8:47 pm

is it ok to have an email server at a different domain than the email it hosts?
For example
email is for (, etc...)
email server for is at (there are no email adresseses for

Is there anything specific to be aware of with a setup like this? Would this likely be a red-flag for spam filters?
Does it even matter as long as the SPF record for the domain indicates the proper sending IP address and the MX records are setup properly?

I've got many other domains on my server without any problems. So you should be fine.
