MX Records

E-mail services such as Office 360 or Zoho Mail requires that MX changes be made in order for their software to work.  This change allows mail destined for your domain to be directed to their server.  Please note that changing MX records will prevent your current POP3 accounts, Forwarders, Autoresponders, and Mailing lists from functioning.


To change the MX record, first access the "E-Mail Menu" from the control panel.  Then, click the "MX Records" icon.

Step 1.   First, delete the old MX record by clicking the checkbox to next to the record name and click "Delete Selected". There should now be no MX records listed.


Step 2.   Next, type in the hostname, followed by a period, given to you by the e-mail provider.  Then select the priority level (usually 10) from the dropdown box on the right. The priority level will also be given to you by the e-mail provider.  Click "Add".


Note: Be sure to put a period at the end of the hostname.


To restore the original MX settings, enter and priority 0 after deleting the other MX record.
