This article is applicable only if you are using an email service purchased from Enom.
If you are using Enom's name servers and you've purchased Enom's email service, the system would've changed the MX record automatically for you. If not, you will need to change the domain's MX record. The domain should only have one MX record:
Please replace yourdomain.com with your domain name. For example, if your domain is acme.biz, your mx record will be
Please note that it's hostedemail, not hostedmail. There is an e in the middle.
If your name servers are Enom's default name servers, you can change the MX record in Enom's Domain control panel, see enom.help/dns. If your name servers are not Enom's default ones, you will need to contact your name server provider. Most likely they are the same company that hosts your website.
Please wait 15 minutes for MX record change to take effect. If you changed name servers at any time during this process, the wait time is 24 to 48 hours. During the wait, some of your emails might go to your old service provider while some going through Enom.
After the MX record change, please proceed to enom.help/client to test your email service through our webmail or setup your email client.
