Note: The change may take up to several hours to update, so you may not receive new email messages via MailRoute immediately. Until then, if you have been using another service for your email, you'll continue to receive messages at your old email provider.

If you see a MX records setup validation in progress message on the Domains page for more than a few hours, check to make sure the MX record values and priority have been correctly entered in your domain host.

    Networks Solutions no longer allows the Change of MX records unless you change your Domain DNS to point back to Network Solutions First then you can change your MX Records. This is incredible horrible because all of the domain names we need to change will be down.
