  • Login to your Speednames control panel at speednames.com.
  • From your Domain Manager - Domain Listing page, select manage of the domain you wish to edit.

Step #2

  • Delete the existing MX records, by clicking the delete button. You will be adding new MX records which will point your email to our network of servers.

Step #3

  • Add three new MX Records, using the settings in the table below. Ensure you place an @ symbol in the source field, and end the mail server entry with a period. These are both requirements of Speednames and your MX records will not work correctly if you leave these two items out. With the three new MX records in place, press Save All to save your changes.
