I need some more information on MX-records
Posted on 2014-01-04
I am about to get a fixed IP address from my ISP. Now I need to get my email sent to it.
According to MX Toolbox.com my mail server ("richel.org") is connected to IP-address 22.214.171.124. Question: where do I change this into the new IP?.
I ask this because at the registrar's site my editable MX record points to 10mx.hover.com.cust.hostedemail.com (so no mention of an IP-address).
On the site where my domain is hosted I cannot edit MX-entries.
Is this something my ISP does (but he only gives me a fixed IP-address, he doesnt know that I want mail.richel.org to point there).
So some explanation please.
