Simple Control Panel: Configure your server's DNS for Workspace email

You can set up email for a domain name hosted on a server using Simple Control Panel.

Configuring your server to use email for a domain name is a two-step process. First, make sure your server isn't configured to use its own email services for your domain name. Second, set the proper MX records for your domain name to use email. For more information, see Checking and managing my MX records.

Simple Control Panel requires either all or none of the hosted domain names use the server for email. 

To Set Up Your Email Using Simple Control Panel

  1. Log in to Simple Control Panel with your user name and password.
  2. Click Email.
  3. Deselect Run An Email Server Locally.
  4. Click DNS.
  5. Click the edit (pencil) icon next to the domain name you want to modify. The Zone Editor page displays.
  6. For the existing MX record, click X to delete it, and then click Save.
  7. Click the edit (pencil) icon.
  8. Select MX, do the following, and then click +:

    • In the Host Field, type @.
    • In the Order Field, enter your MX Priority.

      Note: Simple Control Panel does not allow records with a priority of 0.  For a record with a priority of 0, use 10, and then increase priorities for additional records incrementally.

    • In the Data Field, type smtp.secureserver.net.

  9. To enter another MX Record, select MX, do the following, and then click +:

    • In the Host Field, type @.
    • In the Order Field, enter your MX Priority.
    • In the Data Field, type mailstore1.secureserver.net.

  10. Click Save. When your changes propagate through DNS, email for your domain name will route to the email plan.
