WPX DNS Settings to use mailbox from WPX

Sam Domain & Email Solutions

WPX Hosting offers mailboxes to use email for your domain if you don’t want to use a service like Google or Microsoft Office 365. A lot of other domain name providers and hosting providers offer this service as well. If you are like me and host your DNS settings through Cloudflare instead of through your domain provider or host directly then you will need to set these records manually on Cloudflare. These are the records that you would need to set to get the mailbox to work properly on WPX:

Record Type: MX
Host: @
Value/Target: mail.yourdomain.com
Priority: 5
Record Type: SPF/TXT
Host: @
Value/Target: v=spf1 a mx a:yourdomain.com ip4:your-wpx-server-ip ?all
Record Type: A
Host: mail
Value/Target: your-wpx-server-ip
