MX Record Instructions

An MX update to your DNS file is required to allow Everyone.net to host the email for user@yourdomain.com. Only you or your host have access to update the DNS file.


--- CONTACT YOUR HOST ---
Send them an email or call them with the following instructions. Some hosts may require that you include information such as username/password to verify your identity.

The following MX setting must be added to DNS file for yourdomain.com:
yourdomain.com. MX 0 sitemail.everyone.net.

Note: sitemail.everyone.net is the server name and should not be altered.

Everyone.net is a leading email service provider enabling individuals, groups, and businesses to create a unique identity on the Internet. To use our email service, an MX record update to the DNS file for yourdomain.com is required. If set up correctly, these changes will not affect the customers website or their account with your service.



--- MAKE YOUR OWN DNS UPDATES ---
If you control your own DNS settings or your host allows you to make DNS updates via an online tool, remember to change all MX settings to sitemail.everyone.net for the domains on which you wish to use Everyone.net web-based email, or set up only one MX record.

The following MX setting must be added to DNS file for yourdomain.com:
yourdomain.com. MX 0 sitemail.everyone.net.

Also, you may wish to remove your domain from the list of local aliases and remove any catchall settings. You can get further online instructions at our Tutorial Guides.

For Register.com users, you may not see MX 0, but you can use X-HI or HIGH.
