I am currently using this code to test the validity of a domain name:-
String ipAddress = InetAddress.getByName("").getHostAddress();String hostName = InetAddress.getByName("").getHostName();
Is it possible to set the type (like you would do with a command line nslookup) to mx, so that it tests for mail servers only?
Many thanks

Could you use InetSocketAddress and try the common ports for mail?
