||The sending computer connects to a Transmit (Tx) server. The Tx server receives the email and will act on behalf on the sending computer to deliver the email to the recipient.
||The Tx server uses the “to” address in the email to find the domain name. For example a “to” address of “Info@ShofarPortfolio.com” has a domain of “ShofarPortfolio.com”. The Tx server then requests from a DNS server the domain’s email server’s domain (perhaps “Mail.ShofarPortfolio.com”) and then the IP address of that domain. The DNS server is not sent the email.
||The DNS server returns the requested IP address.
||The Transmit (Tx) server contacts the Receive (Rx) server and sends it the email.
||When the recipient connects to their email server, the Receive (Rx) server in our example, it will find the email present and download it.
