Before you can add a domain to your E4ward account, your DNS records must include the following:

- "A" record

- "MX"  records (, 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 '' to an E4ward account named 'test_acct': IN A      1800 IN TXT 1800  "e4ward test_acct" IN MX  1800  10 IN MX  1800  10 IN MX  1800  10
