  • Hi Jud4ks,

    You can point this new MX record to ABC.com. In this scenario, you will need to do additional settings on your gateway to  routing emails for different domain.(You can confirm with network engineer)

    Indeed, you still need to buy a new record. Point to "ABC.com" may also cause a delay for mails that sent to "APAC.ABS.com".

    So, the best practices is point this new record to child domain directly.
