Before you can add a domain to your E4ward account, your DNS records must include the following:
- "A" record
- "MX" records (mx1.e4ward.com mx2.e4ward.com mx3.e4ward.com, no other MX records, all same priority eg 10)
- "TXT" record name=domain name, value=text containing 'e4ward' and your account name (quotes and order are ignored)
Example DNS (shown in AXFR format) for adding the domain 'example.com' to an E4ward account named 'test_acct':
example.com. IN A 1800
example.com. IN TXT 1800 "e4ward test_acct"
example.com. IN MX 1800 10 mx1.e4ward.com
example.com. IN MX 1800 10 mx2.e4ward.com
example.com. IN MX 1800 10 mx3.e4ward.com
You can use a site such as mxtoolbox.com to check your DNS records. Note that changes to your DNS may take time to propagate.
