Ability to create custom MX records via DNS Templates with <domain> placeholder in the middle
Ability to create custom MX records via DNS Templates with <domain> placeholder in the middle of the value.
For example, currently, it is not possible to create a record via DNS Templates:
<domain>. MX mx.<domain>.example.com
It can be useful for setting up an external mail service with a hostname based on a domain name.
Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.
Seconded here. This missing feature makes it a real nightmare to deal with as soon as you deal with many external email services that requires <domain> in the MX. Please consider implementing this even if it's not hugely popular as a request, as it affects a specific portion of your users: those who deal with external email services.
I agree. Why can't this be done on any record?

It makes little sense that you can do this exact thing dynamically with a CNAME record, but not an MX.
