Let R be an integral domain with quotient field L. Call a nonzero fractional ideal A of R a colon-multiplication ideal any ideal A, such that for every nonzero fractional ideal B of R. In this note, we characterize integral domains for which every maximal ideal resp., every nonzero ideal is a colon-multiplication ideal. It turns that this notion unifies Dedekind and MTP domains.
