Edit a MX Entry
Posted by - NA - on 20 June 2005 04:41 PM
cPanel manages your email through its own mail server. However, by altering your MX (Mail Exchange Record) entry you can point your email to another mail server, if needed.

Note: cPanel will not be able to manage your email if you change your MX Entry setting. Do not change your MX Entry unless you know what you are doing.

To alter your MX Entry setting:
  1. Log into cPanel
  2. Click the Modify Mail Exchanger (MX Entry) link in the Mail area
  3. Click the Change an MX Entry link
  4. Enter the domain name of the new MX Entry in the available field
    Note: you can only change the entry to a domain name (like, not an IP (Internet Protocol) address.
  5. Click the Change button
