  • Hi Skhatri,

    Others may have different views, but I would suggest using 2 DNS records and equal priority MX entries to load balance inbound SMTP rather than the single VIP, to avoid all deliveries from a single remote IP (such as a close business partner or webmail provider etc) still get balanced correctly.
