use_ipv6 — Affects the selection of IPv6 hosts in the SMTP client


use_ipv6 = false

use_ipv6 = true


When set to false, Momentum will ignore AAAA records in the list of hosts resolved from MX lookups. This will effectively prevent the use of outbound IPv6 SMTP connections. The AAAA records will not be visible in the output of the dig console command either.

The default is false.

For a discussion of using IPv6 addresses with listeners, see “Listeners and IPv6 Addresses”.


use_ipv6 is valid in the global scope.
