Configure DNS Settings For Your Domain
Posted by Justin Thomas on 12 May 2015 06:10:16 PM

In order to start using email services on your Domain, it is essential that the correct Mail Exchange (MX) records are added to your DNS settings. These MX records must be created on the authoritative Name Servers of your Domain. If you do not have the necessary access privileges to create these records, you must ask your DNS manager to do so for you.

Usually, the Registrar with whom your domain name is registered, or the company that hosts your website should be able to do this for you.

For the complete list of all the required DNS records (including MX records), refer Mail >> DNS Configuration in your email hosting control panel (Dashboard).

Once these MX records have been added

  1. Go to Mail >> DNS Configuration in your control panel
  2. Click on Verify MX Record. On doing so, the system will check for the records on the Name servers for your domain name to ensure that they are correctly added.

Apart from MX records, you need to add CNAME records and TXT records (DKIM and SPF records) for your email hosting package to function properly with your branding.
