How do I use FakeMX
How do I use FakeMX?
To use the FakeMX service you need to make a simple change to your DNS and point the lowest priority mail server (thats the highest MX number) to the FakeMX servers.
Lets assume your domain is called example.com and when you look up your MX records you get back something like the below
example.com IN MX 10 mx1.example.com. example.com IN MX 20 mx2.example.com.
When you sign up for the FakeMX service you will be allocated to a mail server. In this example the FakeMX server is called mx44999.smtp-engine.com.
All we need to do is add that server to the lowest priority (highest MX) is the list. So our MX list will now look like this
example.com IN MX 10 mx1.example.com. example.com IN MX 20 mx2.example.com. example.com IN MX 30 mx44999.smtp-engine.com.
And thats it!! You're all done.
