You are reading this article because you either:
a. Currently have your email hosted with another company and wish to migrate over to our Rackspace Mail solution
b. You have your email with us and your DNS & website is hosted somewhere else.
You will need to adjust your DNS as follows and add the MX records, SPF, DMARC and Autodiscover to your DNS records.
|MX||@ or left blank||mx1.emailsrvr.com||10||3600 seconds or lowest allowed|
|MX||@ or left blank||mx2.emailsrvr.com||20||3600 seconds or lowest allowed|
|TXT||@ or left blank||v=spf1 include:emailsrvr.com ~all||NA||3600 seconds or lowest allowed|
|CNAME||autodiscover||autodiscover.emailsrvr.com||NA||3600 seconds or lowest allowed|
|TXT||_DMARC||v=DMARC1; p=none; fo=1||NA||3600 seconds or lowest allowed|
|TXT||DKIM||Ask Us or see this post here|
Here is an example of how the settings will look in a Cpanel DNS system.
This is a very simple change to the DNS record for your domain. To be able to do this you need to have access to your DNS records so if you do not know how to do this, please ask your technical representative or domain provider who should be able to easily change this for you.

We also advise adding a DKIM record. For DKIM please contact us and we will create the DKIM record for you to give to your DNS provider.

IMPORTANT NOTE: if you have a control panel like Cpanel or similar, then you will need to make sure that the web site server records are treating your email accounts as "EXTERNAL EMAIL". If you don't you might find that any web site generated emails will try to be delivered locally to the web server and never delivered to your email account.
