I looked for the answer and what I found I supposed to change my mx records or add something, but I’m not sure how, because I tried and it’s not working.
The problem is, that I can reach my email through webmail ( I can send and receive emails). But I cannot connect to my email on my iPhone. When I add details about my email and try to connect, it says that “The IMAP server “mydomain.com” is not responding.”. It worked well before and I didn’t change anything.
In my DNS records I have these records:
Type : A , name : mail, content : (some ip address) , proxied
Type : mx, name: mydomaincom, content: mydomaincom, priority: 10, DNS ONLY
You need to set that IMAP server to a hostname, not an one.
I would set your mail record to and change the IMAP server to
Which exactly settings should I change in the my DNS records?
The result should be like this? :
Type : A , name : mail, content : (some ip address) ,
Type : mx, name: mail, content: domain.com, priority: 10, :grey
Can you post a screenshot of your DNS page? It’s ok to black out IP addresses.
I think you’re trying to use the example.com hostname for a mail server, but it should be mail.example.com, so it would be set to while example.com would be set to for your website.
