Adding a new domain to an existing organisation account

As the admin, adding a new domain is simple and quick to achieve in these steps.

  1. Go to Company Settings
  2. Go to the sub-heading Domains
  3. Click the New Domain button
  4. Enter a single domain in and press save
    1. Specify domain name exactly e.g. or do not use www or http:// text as it will be seen as invalid
    2. remember each domain is distinct
    3. wildcard sub-domains are not accepted
    4. A sub-domain is a separate line entry adding a new domain.
  5. Enter the primary SMTP destination server IP address where email to the newly added domain should delivered.
  6. Repeat steps 3 - 5 until done adding domains.

NOTE: please double check all entries before proceding as any errors my cause the loss of relayed email.
