If your domain name is registered with RescueGroups.org

If your domain name is currently registered with RescueGroups.org, contact RescueGroups.org support and we can update your MX record so that incoming email is delivered to the RescueGroups.org email services. 

If your domain name is registered with a registrar other than RescueGroups.org

If your domain name is currently registered with a Registrar other than RescueGroups.org (ex., GoDaddy, Yahoo, etc), you will need to login to your account at the Registrar to update the domain name's MX record.

Please follow your Registrar's instructions for updating DNS records to add the MX record shown below:

Record type: MX
Content: host1.rescuegroups.org

You should remove any existing MX records so that the record shown above is the only MX record in your domain name.
