Email MX records logging in requires the server name to be the alian

dns

#1

so using the guides available to me I have set up an email domain com and pointed it at domain.com and left that greyed out so I have mx as domain com with mail handled by email domain com and email points at my ip.

This works fine for the most part but when I try to set up my account on my phone for instance using gmail etc it insists i login with email.domain.com unless i use that it doesn’t seem to work. help! :slight_smile:

Yes, you need to use the subdomain for sending and receiving email. The main domain is web browsing only. The MX record should tell senders that mail for you @example.com needs to go to the mail server at that email subdomain.

I see I was just hoping to use the main domain like I used to it was much easier to configure external applications as they self configured the sib domain way doesn’t seem to like SSL
