    Can someone explain to me what the mx field passes?

    I have domain.com and www.domain.com as cname for tomato.domain.com.

    Then I have tomato set ddns a record for tomato.domain.com.

    I have mx record set on my dns, zoneedit, for tomato.domain.com (since domain.com cname's to tomato.domain.com) for primary as itself (tomato.domain.com) and secondary as ddwrt.domain.com (where I have my second router with failover wan).

    So since everything is set up on zoneedit like so, I take it I can leave mx field in tomato blank?

    Zidster, your question is a bit confewzing and I was hoping somebody else would know what you were asking. If the MX record you refer to is at the registrar, it is the Mail eXchange record which is what you use to direct e-mail traffic to your e-mail server. If you are not running an e-mail server then leave the field blank so that spam e-mail traffic does not get directed to your IP.
