MX Entry Maintenance

You can use the MX Entry Maintenance function to change where a domain's email is delivered to. This allows you to have the email from one domain delivered to another domain. Changing your MX entry will change your sites DNS record for MX.

You can use this function to create a backup mail exchanger which will receive mail when the primary exchanger goes down. Once the primary exchanger is back up, mail delivery will resume. To do this, you'll need to add a secondary MX entry for your domain with a lower priority than the primary MX entry. Please be aware the 0 is the highest priority and 10 is the lowest.

Change MX Entry

Change MX for Priority: to:
Always accept mail locally even if the primary mx does not point to this server.

Hint: You must enter a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) as the MX destination.

Warning: Changing your MX to something besides yourdomain.tld will prevent us from managing your mail. Your email will no longer be sent to this server.
