Associate your Domain to a Mail Agent

You can associate your domains under the Domains tab in your Mail Agent. All the associated domains can be viewed as a list in this section. You can also see the Verification (SPF, and DKIM) status and bounce address details for your associated domains here. 

  1. From the left panel, select a Mail Agent to which a new domain has to be added. Before this step ensure that this domain is already created under the Domains tab.
  2. Click on Associate Domain.

  1. In the pop-up box select the domain(s) you want to associate. Add more domains by clicking on the '+' icon.

List of Associated Domains

  1. Click on Save.​ The domain will be associated with the Mail Agent. 
  2. The associated domain will be listed under the Mail Agent Domains tab along with its Verification Status

  1. Complete the domain verification for the domains that has the Verification Status as Pending. Click on the Pending to see the DNS records for the respective domain. 
  2. Select your DNS provider and complete the domain verification process. Refer here for instruction specific to popular DNS providers like GoDaddy. If your DNS provider is not listed, you can select Other from the drop-down.DNS records for the domain
  3. Click on Verify after your domain DNS records are added. It may take 24-48 hours for the records to be published in the DNS. So your domain will not be verified until that time and you will not be able to send any emails.
