Using An External Mailserver

Note: The instruction below assumes the use of an external mail server. For other example, you may click on the link at the end of tutorial for other real time use e.g. G Suite setup

If you wish to use an external Mailserver, a few changes will need to be made.

Go to User Panel -> -> Email -> MX Records

There should be an option for "Local Mail Server". Uncheck that option.

You'll need to change the MX dns record to point to the external mailserver. Remove the "mail" MX record and add "" as the new MX record where that is the domain of the other server.

We have also prepared other real time use of external mail server. Click here for further information.
