Change your MX Records

Any domain that uses email has an MX record, which lists the mail servers available to accept mail for that domain. You must update the MX records of your added domains to point to SpamTitan.

Using two MX records of equal priority allows for fail-over and redundancy. From the table below, select the corresponding MX on the same row as your SpamTitan login URL.

See below for additional information on changing MX records for different common mail services.


After changing your MX records, it is recommended you verify email flow through SpamTitan to your mail server before proceeding to the next setup step, Lock Down Your Mail Server.

SpamTitan Servers

There are a number of SpamTitan servers, one of which your account is on. Find your login URL in the table below to see the corresponding MX and IPs to use during setup.

Setting up cPanel MX Records

Log in to the cPanel administrative console and follow the steps below to set up your cPanel MX records.

  3. Add your SpamTitan Cloud IPs.

Some cPanel servers require an MX record containing the hostname of the cPanel server for mail routing and/or authentication. If, after changing your MX records, you have issues with mail being rejected due to "too many hops" or authentication issues, add a third MX record with a priority of 100 containing the hostname of your cPanel server.

If you add a third record, you may need to lock down your cPanel server to only accept mail from the SpamTitan server.
