If you don't want to hardcode it, make it configurable for your users. You can also look up the MX record of the domain of the intended recipient and deliver the mail there. But delivering mail is a harder problem than you might think, because of Greylisting and firewalls and other stuff. So I think it's best to leave that up to the user.

    Perhaps you could set the default value of your configurable option to the MX record of the sender address. That should work fine in many cases, I guess.

[Corion]: Mhhmmm - https://sod.pixlab .io/ looks really interesting for embedding with Perl (XS), but they don't have any kind of free model available and the cheapest pretrained model costs EUR 40 :-(
[Corion]: Maybe I should mail them to find out if they can provide me a "hotdog / no hotdog" model for developping the XS bindings. It would be nice to have a self-contained XS library for applying models to data. Or maybe I should look at TensorFlow, which can...
[Corion]: ... at least be trained by me, instead of relying on a vendor
