20 Appendix I MX Record Change Details Once set-up is completed your client MX records will need to be changed to the following; inboundcluster1.messageexchange.com pref10 inboundcluster2.messageexchange.com pref10 inboundcluster3.messageexchange.com pref20 inboundcluster4.messageexchange.com pref20 DNS You will need to alter the DNS settings for each and every domain that will be hosted. A CNAME entry of autodiscover.yourdomain.com should be created and pointed at autodiscover. messageexchange.com (yourdomain.com being your domain name). Shared mailbox facilities ie Calendar etc and Out of Office will not be available without this entry. SPF Records We recommend setting up an SPF (Sender Policy Framework) record for any domain added to the system. This will help with the relaying and authentication of your mail and reduce the likelihood of your mail being identified as possible spam by some ISP/mailservers. Please contact the domain host, web developer or owner of the domain and ask them to log into the control panel provided and set-up the following SPF record: include:spf.messageexchange.com The SPF record should resolve to: v=spf1 include:spf.messageexchange.com -all Or, if you have existing SPF records, it should resolve to: v=spf1 ip-your previous spf record details include:spf.messageexchange.com -all Important: If an existing SPF record exists, then you need to add include:spf. messageexchange.com into the current record before the -all part of the syntax as in the second example above. Any other servers that are allowed to send for the domain will have to be included this way as well. For example, you may have a CRM system that sends directly, so this IP address or hostname should also be included. SPF records can be complicated, so if in doubt, speak with the domain hosting company that handles the domain. MessageStream Hosted Exchange Quick Start Guide v4.3 19
