Create an MX record on a domain.


Create an MX record on a SoftLayer domain. This is a shortcut method, meant to take the work out of creating a SoftLayer_Dns_Domain_ResourceRecord if you already have a domain record available. MX records are created with a default priority of 10. createMxRecord returns the newly created SoftLayer_Dns_Domain_ResourceRecord_MxType.


Name Type Description
host string The resource record’s name
data string The resource record’s value
ttl integer The resource record’s time-to-live value.
mxPriority integer The priority this MX record has for mail delivery. Lower priority MTAs are contacted first.
