Updating MX records on Register.com

Objective: 

This article will teach you how to update your existing domain’s MX records to point to Hushmail if you have a domain registered on Register.com.

 

Why you need to set your MX records: 

Mail Exchanger (MX) records are the part of DNS records that direct email to specific servers on the Internet. Before Hushmail can receive mail for your domain, you’ll need to configure the MX records.

2. Select Domains

3. Select Manage

Find the row that contains the name of the domain that you want to modify; and then, in that row, select Manage.

 

4. Scroll to the Advanced Technical Settings section and select Edit Mail Exchanger Records
