Is there a way to bypass the DNS's MX record? My company uses Barracuda for spam filtering and our company's MX record points to Barracuda. A product we're trying to build needs to talk TLS to the mail server, but to test this I have to create a subdomain that bypasses Barracuda and then having to deal with the SSL certs for that. Not necessarily a show stopper. But if I could fool something to use our mail server's actual IP address as opposed to the MX, that'd help a lot.
Any thought, cantor, ideas or anecdotes?
