First of all my sincere appreciation for an excellent program!
Is it possible to have 2 mx records configured in ddclient.conf for 2 different dyndns domains? If so how?
I have 2 dyndns domains as follows:
type=paid (custom dns)
My ddclient works great updating ip address for both domains. However it only updates the MX record for the first domain (domain1). I would also like it to update the mx record of the second domain (domain2). With my current ddclient.conf, the MX record for domain2 stays empty at dyndns.com
My ddclient.conf at present is:
I have searched the forums here but could not find an answer specific to MX records.
Thank you for your help in advance!
Addnl info: my ddclient version is 3.6.2-6ubuntu1
Update: dyndns.com does not support FTTP update of MX records for "custom" DNS, per e-mail below:

I am sorry but you can not update MX records for Custom DNS hosts, you have to manually
modify them through our website. You can do that by going to
and then clicking on your domain. You will be able to modify all your records, including MX
records, through there.
let us know if you have any other issues we can help with.

Also I figured out what was wrong in my ddclient.conf file: the correct entries are shown below (too bad MX record for custom dns cannot be updated).
custom=yes, mx=domain2.com domain2.com
