Anyway to quickly setup email accounts on my staff's phones by specifying default email settings (pop server/smtp server) in the DNS...

They mostly have iPhones and Androids...

I want it so when I create a new email account on their phone,, it queries the DNS of for default SMTP server, etc.?

Is this possible?

Yes, there Is a way, I think you need mail, SMTP, pop hostnames within the domain zone.

Let me double check that.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Ok then do not include a host for imap, Just covering the basis.

smtp, mail and pop are the ones seemingly used for the "autodiscovery" if the hosts are defined they are used. pop for the incoming, mail or smtp for the outgoing.

So I should just create CNAME records for pop and smtp?
