Understanding Priorities

The Priority column shows the relative priorities of the VentraIP Australia dedicated incoming mail scanning nodes, which then relay forward to your specific Email Hosting server that you’re hosted from. Mail is delivered to the node with the highest priority first. If for some reason that server isn’t available, mail is delivered to the server with the next highest priority, and so on through all your the servers. Priority values don’t have to be exactly like those shown above and some DNS hosting providers will present the information differently.
