Email DNS Records

These are the DNS records you need to have a functional email service:

 

DNS

DNS stands for Domain Name System. The phone book of the Web.

 

Time To Live (TTL)

The TTL is a value in a DNS record that determines how long before changes to the record go into effect.

 

A Records

An A or Address record (also known as a host record) maps a domain name to an IP address of a server.

Optional: Autodiscover and Autoconfig - for a faster setup of email on other devices.

Name Content
autodiscover 69.28.212.195
autoconfig 69.28.212.195

 

MX Records

Mail Exchange (MX) records direct a domain's email to mail servers. Specifies the mail server responsible for accepting email messages on behalf of a domain name.

Name Priority TTL
mx.emailarray.com 5 1/2 hour
mx2.emailarray.com 10 1/2 hour

 

TXT Records

A TXT record is a text information DNS record used for a number of arbitrary purposes.

SPF - the SPF is a TXT record in the DNS that tells the Internet which servers you allow sending email on behalf of your domain.

To add a new SPF record, create a TXT record with the value: v=spf1 +a +mx include:emailarray.com -all

If you have an existing SPF record, you need to edit it and add include:emailarray.com before the -all tag.

Name Content TTL
@ v=spf1 +a +mx include:emailarray.com -all 1/2 hour

 

CNAME Records

A CNAME or Canonical Name record maps one domain name (an alias) to another (the canonical name).

Webmail - a CNAME record that will link the URL webmail.mydomain.com to the Webmail on our servers. Do this, and you will be able to log in to check your email using this simple URL: webmail.mydomain.com (where mydomain.com is the name of your domain) from any browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.), from any device.

Name Content TTL
webmail webredirect.emailarray.com 1/2 hour
