Local, Backup, and Remote Mail Exchanger
This is a setting that informs Reprise Hosting how to handle your inbound e-mails. We recommend using Automatically Detect Configuration, but sometimes we need to modify this setting to make all e-mails arrive.
Go to cPanel and simply select the MX Entry symbol.
Local Email Exchanger - Use this if the most important priority MX record points to an IP on this server.
Back-up Email Exchanger - Shared and Reseller: This setting is not compatible with our shared servers; use Automatically Detect Configuration instead.
VPS and Dedicated: Use this if the most important priority MX record points to another server, but a smaller concern MX history points to this server. Doing this can create this server your backup option when the normal server is not available.
Remote Email Exchanger - Use this if there are no MX records that point to an IP on this server.
Click change button and test your email.
