How Do I Point My Email To Another Provider

You can point your email to another provider by editing a record via your cPanel control panel.

This article assumes that you already have another email provider in place and that you've been provided with the relevant information to point your email address to them.


The first step is to log into your cPanel account. If you are unsure on how to do this, please view the following help article - 'How to log into cPanel'.


Scroll down to the the 'Email' section and choose 'MX Entry'.


Scroll down to the 'MX Records' section. You should find your current email provider listed. To point this to another provider, choose the 'Edit' option.
