Adding email MX records

Last Updated: December 12, 2023

The MX records for the email product are as follows:

Type Host TTL Priority Answer
MX 300 10
TXT  @(or blank)     v=spf1 ~all

Note: Type out your own domain in the "" areas. 

If you are using’s default name servers you can add these records to your DNS by applying our Email DNS template. To do so, follow these steps:

How to add DNS records for email

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. Click on the MY DOMAINS link, located on the top right of the navigation. 
  3. Click on the domain that you have the email product on.
  4. Near the middle of the page, there are several options to manage your domain. Click Manage DNS Records.
  5. Click Show DNS Templates. In the drop-down menu that appears, select Email.
  6. Click the green button Update DNS Records.

Keep in mind, by default when you create the email, it will give you the option to create it automatically, so the records may already be there.

If your DNS is not managed with (this is the case if you are not using our name servers), then you will need to add these records with your DNS management provider or hosting provider.
