Using E-mail Services

You can use a number of different e-mail services with a single e-mail account. For example, you can have an e-mail address that will accept mail as any standard mailbox, forward to a number of recipients, and send an automatic response to the original message sender.

If you are going to serve mailboxes under a specific domain with an external mail server, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Domains > domain name > DNS Settings.
  2. In the Record type column, locate an MX record, and click the respective link in the Host column on the left.
  3. In the Enter mail exchanger box, type the external mail server's host name, for example, mailserver.example.com.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click Up Level to return to the domain management screen.
  6. Click Mail.
  7. Click Switch Off.
