How to change MX records (cPanel)

This quick guide will take you through the steps of updating your MX records within cPanel.

Step 1. Log in to cPanel 

 Step 2. Click on “Zone Editor 



Step 3. Click on Manage” next to the domain in question. 



In this section you are able to add a new record and edit or delete existing records.



Step 4. On the cPanel homepage please click on “Email Routing. 


Step 5. You will have a few options to choose from but we only make use of two. 

– Local Mail Exchanger – If we are your email provider. 

– Remote Mail Exchanger – If the email is being hosted outside of our network. Even if the mail provider resides within South Africa you         would still need to select this option. 


Step 6. Click on “Change” once you selected the correct routing option.
