DNS Records, Hostnames & IP Addresses

Cisco Secure Email Cloud Gateway

For a customer allocation using Cisco Secure Email Cloud Gateway, we build the DNS records and associated hostnames as follows:

esa.<alloc>(.<region>).iphmx.com

  • “esa” will list all IP Addresses for the allocation

mx1.<alloc>(.<region>).iphmx.com

  • “mx1” will list all IP Addresses used in the MX Records

ob1.<alloc>(.<region>).iphmx.com

  • “ob1” will list all IP Addresses used by the Hosted Interface, if any

📘

By removing the results provided in “mx1” and “ob1”, you will have the Outgoing (NAT) IP Addresses.
