Perfect this is what I was talking about, now
My IMAP and SMTP are on same server and confusion starts from there
since MX records will eventaully should have A record as well so in
that case I will be having 2 A records pointing to same IPs correct.
Woudl that casue any issue, theortically it shouldnt.
example.com IN MX 10 mail.example.com
example.com IN MX 20 mail01.example.com
mail.example.com IN A 188.8.131.52
mail01.example.com IN A 184.108.40.206
imap.example.com IN A 220.127.116.11
imap.example.com IN A 18.104.22.168
