  1. On the following screen activate Mailserver (IN MX) (1) under Mail Settings.
  2. Enter the host name of the mailserver you want to use with the domain in the text-box (2). Please avoid to specify an IP address in that section. Use the hostname of the mailserver instead of an IP address.

Kindly note:

  • To provide the priority or preference of the MX record is mandatory. The default-priority of an MX record configured through dd24 is "10".
  • If you provide "20" as priority for a possible second MX record, this MX record will only be used in case the first one is not available.
