plsmtp1.hushmail.com

Any other MX records listed in your records can be deleted as you only need the two Hushmail MX records for the system to work properly. Leaving old MX records may impact your ability to receive email at your Hushmail account.

If you are starting from scratch and have no MX records, then simply add two new records and enter the values seen in the video above.

Once this process is complete, give the system half an hour to an hour as it may take time to propagate the changes across the web.

You can check your MX records for your domain to see if they are set by using a third party MX checking tool like MX Toolbox
