This will only effect that domain that you are trying to use, typically if a email address does not have a valid MX record it's a server utilized by spammers hence the reason it can be checked. You can turn this feature off in the ACP under security settings if you want but there is really no reason too. Unchecking this will have no real security implications except for the spammer issue. If the email address that is failing is your own domain I'd contact your host because any emails sent from your forum WILL get bounced by most mail servers.
