How do I set up Zoho Mail in DO?

September 10, 2014 6.3k views

Good morning,

I've been using Zoho Mail before switching to Digital Ocean. MX Records are already set with my namehost, but apparently I can't receive emails anymore.

I have added the same MX records and priorities in Digital Ocean admin, could you confirm me that it's the right way to go?

Have a nice day
Sophie
ps: domain silencio.fr

  • Apparently you time it right.

    But I recommend you to use a CND (CloudFlare) to manage your DNS pointers. It is easier to manage and improve performance.

Hi Sophie,

It look like the mx change was done successfully in DNS zone for silencio.fr

whois silencio.fr | grep nsnserver     
nserver:     ns1.digitalocean.com
nserver:     ns2.digitalocean.com
nserver:     ns3.digitalocean.com

Your MX records were recorded well on DO nameservers :

dig mx silencio.fr +short
20 mx2.zohomail.com.
10 mx.zohomail.com.

And the authoritative Nameservers for that domain are the DO nameservers :

dig ns silencio.fr +short
ns1.digitalocean.com.
ns3.digitalocean.com.
ns2.digitalocean.com.

So, according to those basic checks, you will just need to wait until DNS propagation is done to use your mail service again. It should be working fine in a delay between 1 and 3 hours.

Let us know if you still have an issue,

Regards,
