Is it possible to set up Mail eXchange (MX) for a Glitch website?
Edit: To clarify I mean setting up MX records.

Hey @cherryblossom000, if you mean hosting an MX server on Glitch that’s probably not going to work given that we only open a specific port to the outside world (and further, depending on what software you’d like to use there’s a good chance it won’t be installed in the container and you won’t be able to install it yourself).

If that’s not what you mean, can you help me understand what you do mean?

Sorry, I should have clarified. I mean setting up MX records for a website hosted on Glitch.

You can certainly set up an MX record at your registrar and point it to Glitch, but the IP address of your Glitch project will change pretty regularly, so an A record pointed to your project’s IP address will quickly become stale. Additionally I’m not sure why one would do that - as I mentioned you won’t be able to run a mail service on the default ports, so mail delivered to your Glitch project won’t be processed as expected by most mail delivery services.

Can you help me understand what your hoped-for result is?
