Did you ever manage to find out who at Apple to speak to about getting things
added to or changed in this database?


Quite irritating how there is zero public-facing information about this.  Also,
an Apple employee authored RFC 6186, yet they don't implement it??

Looking for an iCloud/Apple admin contact me off list. 


I’ve exhausted all the usual support channels on this one and some of the
responses have been quite comical.



Every time you setup an email account in Apple Mail it will check the domain
entered against a database of email server settings and conveniently autofill
those settings.


10 or so years ago we reached out to our business contact at Apple to setup
email server auto discovery for our domain, over the last decade our contact
has left and any attempts to reach Apple to get this info updated have been
fruitless. The autofilled info now points to a long dead email server.
