Where Do I Access My Domain's MX Records?

Hello,
I want to work with google app and when I am updating my domain details they ask me to update the MX Records.
I bought the domain in namecheap and in their westie it's been told that if i update the DNS to a third party (witch I did - to my affilohost account) I should update the MX Records here.

Where can i find the MX records in the dashborad of the affilohost account?

thanks Nir

Hi Nir,

The MX records are found on your domain register. If you registered your domain through Namecheap, then you will find the MX records on their domain name manager. The following Namecheap FAQs can help:

Please let us know how you get on. All the best!

Hey
I already tried that but because i have changed the DNS to affilohost so I need to do the MX configuration with you (so they say at namecheap)
here is the link.. and also the text telling that.

Please help me with getting my MX fixed.

https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowl ... spx/323/46

"If you have changed the DNS settings of your domain to use a third-party name server OR our hosting servers (dns1.namecheaphosting.com, dns2.namecheaphosting.com), your host records (including A/CNAME/MX/TXT records) get moved to the third-party name server (or our hosting nameserver accordingly). Hence you need to contact your current DNS provider to enable these features or alter the settings back to Namecheap's default name servers."
