Setting up DNS Records for Email
Without the correct DNS settings associated to
your domain, you can experience problems
sending/receiving email. Please read the
sections below detailing the most common DNS
record-types for email. You will need to contact
your DNS Host directly to add or edit any DNS
Records.

MX Records
MX records direct incoming email sent to your
domain to the correct location. If the MX records
are incorrect you will have trouble receiving mail
from any senders outside of your own domain
You will need to add the following two MX
records to your domain:
1.
Hostname: blank or @
Time to Live (TTL): 3600
Record Type: MX
Destination: mx1.emailsrvr.com
Priority: 10
2.
Hostname: blank or @
Time to Live (TTL): 3600
Record Type: MX
Destination: mx2.emailsrvr.com
Priority: 20
*Note: Typically it takes between 24 and 48
hours for changes to DNS records to fully
propagate. We typically recommend updating
your DNS records during the off-peak traffic
hours to allow for DNS propagation. No mail will
be lost during this time

Autodiscover Record
Autodiscover is a service that allows you to
easily configure your email clients, knowing only
your email address and password. Autodiscover
also enables additional features for Microsoft
Exchange mailboxes such as: downloading the
offline address book, viewing Free/Busy time in
a calendar, and the Out-of-Office Assistant.

Document Updated: 10/14

*Note: Autodiscover is not compatible with
Outlook 2011 and Mac Mail
To set up Autodiscover on your domain, add
the following record information:
Hostname: autodiscover
Time to Live (TTL): Lowest Possible
Record Type: CNAME
Destination: autodiscover.emailsrvr.com
Note: Some DNS providers require your full
domain name in the hostname field; e.g. if your
domain is example.com, your hostname would
be autodiscover.example.com

SPF Record
The SPF Record is designed to combat and
reduce spam for your domain. It helps mail
servers identify unauthorized use of your domain
in the form of forgeries (spoofing). SPF records
also help improve your email deliverability rate
by preventing the email that you send from
landing in a recipient’s spam or junk mail folder.
To create the SPF record on your domain,
add the following record information:
Hostname: blank or @
Time to Live (TTL): Lowest Possible
Record Type: TXT
Destination: v=spf1 include:emailsrvr.com ~all
