Types of DNS entries

The following DNS entries are required to use email services at Zonal365 properly:

  • Autodiscover records allow for full functionality of calendar features (free/busy information) and easier email client setups.

Configure DNS to send and receive email

Use the following steps to ensure your domain properly routes incoming and outgoing email.

  1. Log in to the control panel for your domain DNS host.
  2. Set the DNS entries to the values shown in the following table. Ensure that no other MX record entries exist, or you will experience complications with your email.
MX @ or Domain name 10 Auto / 3600
TEXT @ or Domain name
v=spf1 a mx -all
 NA Auto / 3600
Auto / 3600
  1. Save your changes.

You have successfully set up your DNS for your domain.
