This demo will show you how to edit an MX entry through your WHM.

Follow the directions in this demo ONLY if you wish to have the account's mail duties handled by a 3rd party mail server. If you wish to have the account's mail delivered to your account with Acenet, Inc. leave your MX record as it is originally set. Changing your MX record to an invalid entry may cause a disruption in mail services.
