Setting Up Mail.ru Mail on Your Domain - ISPmanager

Confirm Your Rights for Domain

To confirm that the domain belongs to you, you must specify the TXT record in the domain settings.

  1. Add a domain to your control panel (more in this article).
  2. Copy the text indicated on the "DNS check" tab on the domain confirmation page on the biz.mail.ru website.
  3. Then go to the ISPmanager control panel: Domain names - Records.

    Go to Records in ISPmanager
  4. Click Add and add a TXT record in the window that opens. In the field, enter the value from step 2 and click Finish.
  5. Return to the window opened at step 2. Click Confirm.

Creating an MX Record

  1. Delete the standard MX record in the ISPmanager panel:
    Delete based MX Records
  2. Add a new MX record and specify the following parameters in it:
    1. Name: your_domain_name. (a dot at the end is required!)
    2. Type: MX (mail server)
    3. Address: emx.mail.ru.
    4. Priority: 0

It takes several hours to verify the MX record. Upon completion of the verification, an email with the results will be sent to your email address.  

SPF Record

The SPF record protects against domain forgery and helps prevent emails sent from your addresses from getting into spam.

  1. Add TXT record in the domain settings of the control panel:
    Add SPF Record
  2. In the window that opens, paste the following parameters:
    1. Name: your_domain_name. (a dot at the end is required!)
    2. Type: TXT (text record)
    3. Address: "v = spf1 redirect = _spf.mail.ru" (in quotes!)
