  • Posted November 8, 2013

I’m not familiair with MX / TXT and other DNS changes. I want to use mail from my domain account. So, etc etc.

How to setup these records so I can receive mail at these mail accounts and what to setup to send to my customer and that my customers will receive my mail not in their SPAM box.

Do I have to do it in both control panels , because my domain is hosted somewhere else. I only entered the nameservers of digital ocean there? <br> <br>Which mx records to use? Which TXT records to use? <br>

In the Control Panel, go to DNS -> Add Domain. After adding the domain, you can also add new records. In this case, choose MX or TXT record and just add it. <br> <br>If your domain is hosted by another provider, you have to to do it in their control panel somewhere.
