    Help. I'm trying to change my MX record so that another company,, can handle my email. So, in my servers Domain Admin area I've gone in and changed to these new settings:

    __________________________ IN MX 10 hermes IN MX 20 mercury IN MX 30 apollo

    hermes IN A
    mercury IN A
    apollo IN A

    I'm not sure if I needed to setup these A records or not, as someone else told me I need to setup a CNAME for each. Maybe, I don't need to do either (?)

    After doing this, I happened across an area within my Cpanel that I'm unsure of. I clikc the "Mail" icon (Mail Manager Main Menu), then click on the last link "Modify Mail Exchanger (MX Entry)", and on this page my Current MX shown is (eg) "". Now, should I change this to "" or maybe "" or neither? Help!!!! What do I need to do???
