What MX records do I need to set for Dedicated Email Hosting?
Updated Thursday March 30th 2017 / Category Email Hosting

Please note: These instructions are for Dedicated Email Hosting services only. If you have a cPanel service your MX records should already be configured for you.

You will need contact your DNS hosting provider and ask them to set your MX records for you. The MX record controls where mail is delivered for your domain name.

mx1.email-hosting.net.au (Priority 10)
mx2.email-hosting.net.au (Priority 10)
mx3.email-hosting.net.au (Priority 20)
mx4.email-hosting.net.au (Priority 30)

If you are utilising an Economy, Business or WHM Multi cPanel service, you can modify the MX records set on your domain name by following the steps in this FAQ article.

Understanding Priorities

The Priority column shows the relative priorities of the VentraIP Australia dedicated incoming mail scanning nodes, which then relay forward to your specific Email Hosting server that you’re hosted from. Mail is delivered to the node with the highest priority first. If for some reason that server isn’t available, mail is delivered to the server with the next highest priority, and so on through all your the servers. Priority values don’t have to be exactly like those shown above and some DNS hosting providers will present the information differently.
