MX Entry

You can use the Modify Mail Exchanger (MX Entry) 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.

Here are the steps:

  1. Click on "MX Entry"
  2. The current MX entries will be listed on this screen. Click on "Change an MX Entry" to modify one of those entries
  3. Select the domain you wish to change the entry for from the drop box
  4. Enter the new destination domain in the blank field and click "Change"

If the entry was changed successfully, the following will appear (except the domains listed will be the ones you are using):

MX Entry Saved

The MX entry for domain.com has been changed to domain2.com

The local mail configuration has been updated!

Troubleshooting: You will need to make the MX entry point to a domain that you are in control of so you can get the mail once it is sent to that domain. Invalid domain names will not work.
