It might take some time to see the changes in your DNS based on your provider and domain settings.
The first step in configuring your DNS is updating your MX records.
MX records tell the world which server should receive the e-mails sent to your domain and deliver them to the specified e-mail provider, straight to your mailbox. You can usually edit the MX records 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 our hosting services for the e-mail.
You should first remove all other MX records and then add the following, with the specified preference (the Host value is usually '@'):
Priority / Preference
It is not recommended to create CNAME records within your domain that point to EmailArray MX records and use that CNAME as your MX records.

The SPF record is necessary, so your e-mail is not marked as Spam. The SPF will help with your e-mail deliverability because it specifies a list of authorized hosts that can send e-mails on behalf of a domain.
First, check for any existing TXT records with SPF.
If you don't have an existing SPF record, you must add a TXT record with the following value (the host value is usually '@'):
v=spf1 include:emailarray.com -all
If you have an SPF record, you should edit it and insert before the final -all directive, the following value: include:emailarray.com
Example configuration for SPF TXT records in GoDaddy DNS:
To improve e-mail deliverability, you should enable DKIM for your domain from your Admin Panel and then add the records to your DNS.
DKIM is an e-mail authentication method designed to detect forged sender addresses in e-mails, a technique often used in phishing and e-mail spam (Wikipedia).
To enable DKIM for your domain:
Go to the Admin Panel.
To simplify the configuration of modern e-mail clients such as Outlook and Thunderbird, as well as all your mobile devices, you can now use the Autodiscover & Autoconfig web services to configure these clients automatically. You have to add two *A* records in the DNS for your domain:
A record hostname
A record hostname
