Link a Combell mailbox to a domain name
How you link a Combell mailbox to a domain name depends on where the domain name is registered.
The domain name is registered with Combell
This is the simplest situation. Since Combell provides both services, we automatically link them for you. Order a mailbox, enter your domain name and we will arrange everything.
The domain name is registered with another provider
If the domain name to which you want to link the mailbox is registered elsewhere, you will have to change the DNS settings.
Enter these DNS settings on the control panel of your domain name provider.
MX records Extra DNS settings to activate Autodiscover MX records CNAME record
Don’t forget these extra settings if you want your mailbox (s) to be configured automatically in Outlook or Thunderbird?
Enter CNAME and SRV records to activate Autodiscover .
Extra DNS settings to activate Autodiscover
Once your DNS settings have been changed, it takes up to 24 hours for the connection between your domain name and the mailbox to be completely in order.
Link a mailbox from another provider to a domain name at Combell
You have a domain name with Combell and you want to use it with an external mail provider such as Microsoft Office 365, Google Suite or your own mail server. Then you request the DNS settings from that provider to make the connection.
Once you have those DNS settings (usually an adjusted mx record), you can easily adjust them in the control panel via My products> DNS & Forwarding management.
