HowTo: Managing your own DNS - MX Records

If you are managing your own DNS or managing your DNS with another company, but you still use Alentus's POP email services, you will need to set up an MX record for your domain name. The MX record is different for each mail server and the one you will need to set up depends on what mail server your website uses. The MX record is normally included in the welcome kit for your website.

If you already have the mail sub-domain added to your DNS records, then you can determine what mail server you are using by performing an nslookup from command prompt. If you don't have the mail sub-domain added to your DNS records, then you will have to contact Alentus Technical Support for assistance.

An MX record consists of a Preference and an Address. If you know what mail server your website is currently using, please refer to the table below and add the appropriate MX record to your DNS records.

Mail Server Pref. Address
ns15 10 mf01.zabco.net
ns77 10 mf02.zabco.net
ns125 10 mf03.zabco.net
mail01 10 mf04.zabco.net
mail02 10 mf06.zabco.net
mail03 10 mf07.zabco.net
mail04 10 cf01.yeg.alentus.net
