CPanel manages your e-mail through its own mail server. However, by altering your MX (Mail Exchange Record) Entry you can point your e-mail to another mail server, if this is required.
Note: CPanel will not be able to manage your e-mail 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:
- Click on the Modify Mail Exchanger (MX Entry) link in the Mail area.
- Click on the Change an MX Entry link.
- Enter the domain name of the new MX Entry in the available field.
Note: You can only change the entry to a domain name (e.g. yourdomain.com), not an IP (Internet Protocol) address.
- Click on the Change button.
