I have a and How do I adjust the MX records accordingly to where all mail sent to goes to one server (IP1 66.xx.xx.xx) and all other mail sent to goes to another server (IP2 67.xx.xx.xx)? -> IP1 -> IP2

Make sure you have DNS records for the mail servers, for example:         IN    A     66.xx.xx.xx         IN    A     67.xx.xx.xx

Then create an MX record for each domain:         IN    MX    10               IN    MX    10
