Change MX Records

Every domain name has unique settings that allow you to register it at one company while hosting email and websites at another. For Penta Mails to host your email, you will have to "point" the MX records portion of these DNS settings to our email servers.

Microsoft Exchange customers should set up Autodiscover during this step.

Contact your domain registrar and request the following change to your MX records, or, if you have access to your registrar’s control panel for your domain, you can make these changes yourself. To view step-by-step directions, please click the link for your domain registrar above.

First Mail Server: (preference 10)

Second Mail Server: (preference 20)



Record Type:



Priority or Preference:

High or Low

*No Hostname, but @ is a common notation to describe the domain itself.

Since it typically takes up to 4 hours for the MX record changes to take complete affect, you may want to make this switch during non-business hours or when email activity is light. No email will be lost during this transition.
