1. MX Records


The first step in configuring your DNS is updating your MX records. MX records tell the world which server should receive e-mails destined for your domain, and deliver it to you. You can usually find update the MX records in for your domain from the same Control Panel you use for managing your DNS. You can safely keep your website hosted with another provider and only use PolarisMail our hosting services for the e-mail.

You should first remove all other MX records and then add the following, with the specified preference:

Name

Preference

mx.emailarray.com

      5

mx2.emailarray.com
