    Hi all-

    Im kind of new to this side of things - I have domains that are still over at Register.com and I have a VPS with GoDaddy. Used to run everything with Register, but no need to bore you with the details... anyway, I have several domains of email that run perfectly with Microsoft 365 - but now that I have this great server and the ability to do email, I wanted to try setting it up on a domain that I don't use right now.

    So here is my question...

    I see how to physically setup email addresses in cPanel - built one, went to it through webmail..

    And then I went to send a test and I am getting a s104-238-98-220.secureserver.net rejected your message to the following email addresses

    So clearly I have set something up correctly because its seeing my server in the first place - but then its coming back right away not seeing the actual email account.

    Am I not setting up my MX records correctly? its mail.mydomain.com - and I added a CNAME record with mail. being pointed to my servers IP address...

    help :)
