I built a free, open-source, encrypted, and private solution at https://github.com/niftylettuce/forward-email. This service does not store logs, it is completely private and simply acts as a proxy. No email is ever stored on the server, it's all proxied in memory to the recipient's mail server (view the source on GitHub if you'd like to learn more about ...
They all point to Google services though, as we use Google for our email. Am I likely to break email or other services by removing an old A record?
If your MX records remain pointed to the Google mail server hosts, then you should be fine, providing that your nameservers are reachable and DNS table contains those MX records.
As far as other "services", ...
When you are sending a mail to email@example.com,The mail server of example.com is determined using MX records. Assume the following records for example.
example.com MX mail.example.com
mail.example.com A 126.96.36.199
If an MX record is found, MTA will do a forward lookup for the name returned (here mail.example.com which will return 188.8.131.52 )and try to deliver ...
You will need to add an MX record to your domains DNS. If you're using your Registrar to do the email forwarding, you'll add their e-mail servers for the MX records. Without an MX record, mail servers have no idea which servers to send the mail to.
To have your email hosted with a different company, you simply need to set your MX records in your DNS. Here is an in depth article with lots of information about how to do that.
The basics are:
Your mail host gives you the names of your mail servers
You create MX records with in DNS with those host names (and a priority)
The MX records can point ...
MX records have nothing to do with sending mail.
Anybody can send mail that appears to come from your domain. DNS records can now be used to authenticate official mail sending servers. The records for that are DKIM or SPF records. See: https://wordtothewise.com/2012/10/setting-up-dns-for-sending-email/
Google has documentation for setting up DKIM ...
I'm afraid I couldn't help you with the complications of setting up a Postfix mailserver, however with regards to your questions about the DNS records:
The MX record you have created looks fine, provided that you have checked that (a) you have no other MX records with a priority less than 10, and (b) you have definately also got an A record setup for titan....
I posted my plea for help a bit too soon. LOL.
To get it working:
Delete MX record on cPanel and CloudFlare,
Create new MX record with Priority 1 pointing to mail.example.com on cPanel and CloudFlare.
So, all is working again. Phew.
Though, I have noticed that email from Outlook.com comes in instantly, while mail from Gmail takes about 20 mins to arrive. ...
You need to add the MX record to your domain first - go to your domain's DNS records (wherever these are managed), and add an MX record for your subdomain to point its mail to inbound.postmarkapp.com with a priority of 10.
sub.john-john.com MX inbound.postmarkapp.com 10
In Postmark's documentation, inbound.postmarkapp.com isn't just an ...
Putting a CNAME record at the root of your domain breaks email. If you want email to work, you just can't do that.
Heroku has instructions for this case. You need to use a DNS host that supports "alias" records. They are also sometimes called "aname" or "proxy" records. Those are served as normal A records with an IP address, but the server ...
Yahoo doesn't allow it's users to add TXT records on their own.
You'll need to:
1) Send an email to yourself using the Yahoo ID associated with your domain
2) Contents of the email will include your request and the actual TXT record
3) Call Yahoo domain support and inform them that you want to add a TXT record... they'll ask you to do #1 & #2 above
You can just use the same MX records pointing to multiple mail servers.
Here is how we do it:
Primary Domain For Email: master.example
A - mail.master.example - ip of master domain.
MX Records pointing to mail.master.example
Other Domain Names
MX Records pointing to mail.master.example
In other words all you do is re create the MX records in your ...
Usually when I do move my domain and DNS, I would setup the new DNS before. Then when you update your existing DNS to point to new DNS, you only have to wait for the propagation which could take around 12hrs depending on how far the DNS is away (meaning sometimes countries differ a bit on time as there is a few DNS hops between them)
A PTR record is used to map an IP address to a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). So basically the opposite of what an IP address does.
If you are worried about email spoofing, you may also want to set up an SPF1 and SPF2 record, which if set to a hard fail will also prevent spam being spoofed from your IP address/domain name.
However with regards to ...
There are a few steps to get this to work.
Setup Email Hosting on Your Server
Make sure your server is setup to receive email at your domain name.
This is where most people make the error. You need a MX record and an A record.
example.com MX 10 mail.example.com
mail.example.com A 192.168.1.0
The MX records says that mail ...
MX record only sets the domain to use for emails. In your case you set it to mail.domain.org. To control what mail.domain.org resolves to, add separate A record or CNAME for mail.domain.org. E.g.
mail.domain.org. in A 184.108.40.206
you are right.
1.buy a normal ssl certificate for 'yourdomain.com'
2.create a mx record without mail. suffix
yourdomain.com. 800 IN MX 10 yourdomain.com.
MX domain on the right should be equal to ssl certificate domain. That's what program checks when sending emails. It helps your mails not ending in Junk mail.
3.The same ssl certificate can be used ...
It depends on how much mail you are sending/receiving. Also, shared hosting providers usually have hourly limits on how much mail you can send. Somewhere around 500-1000 emails. You better check up on it. Tell them your issues, and needs. Let them suggest the best solution.
The quota should not slowdown the performance of your website. Even if both are on the same server, it shouldn't affect the website performance. If you face problems with loading speed, I would suggest you to check with the provider. They should be able to investigate it further.
A 550 error code means that your SMTP server isn't able to deliver the sent email to the user because recipient mailbox does not exist. According to me if your hosting account is running on shared environment rather than dedicated then please contact your hosting service provider and say them to check your e-mail functionality. Might be your email ...
Tim is correct. You will need to point a subdomain on your domain to inbound.postmarkapp.com, using an MX record.
So, inbound.yourdomain.com will have an MX record of inbound.postmarkapp.com with a priority of 10.
Then, when verified in Postmark, you can send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mail.example.com address points to your mailserver IP address. (You can look up the IP at https://www.whatsmydns.net/ by searching for the A record for that domain.)
If you see no IP address for that domain, you'll have to add an A record for your mail.example.com address that points to your mailserver's IP address, or a CNAME that points ...
This is a very helpful warning. It is there because of a weird rule in how mail sending is implemented. If there is a CNAME entry for the domain apex, all MX records are ignored and mail does not work.
To be able to add MX records, you need to specify an A record rather than a CNAME record for your apex record (requestly.in). Github has instructions ...
You are correct in that it does basically circumvent WHOIS privacy by making the email address you put there public. You have a couple options here:
If your registrar supports email forwarding, create an email forward from a mailbox on your domain - something like email@example.com - to your real email address. This "facade" email address won't betray any ...
I generally set up a sub-domain name, though it is not necessary. The sub-domain name does not matter. I use mail, but titan is perfectly fine. You want to either set up your sub-domain name using either a CNAME pointing to mydomain.com.au or as an A record just like mydomain.com.au. Either way you chose, it does not matter. Next you would set up a MX record ...
