 Don't understand instructions!

Hi there,

Very sorry to start this thread but I'm a bit lost about donating an MX record. I've signed up to project honeypot to try and stop spam users registering for my Joomla website as a message board on Joomla stuff recommended that I do.

I have cPanel 11.25. I've set up a subdomain. But I really don't get what I'm supposed to do next.

Can someone please help and give me step by step instructions? I assume I go into MX Records but then I'm lost.

Thank you!

1) Goto Mail->MX Entry
2) Select the Domain you want to register
3) Add New MX Entry as with priority 0
4) IN MX Records, delete other records or increase its priority
5) Select Automatically Detect Configuration: Remote (recommended)

Its done

Step 5 fixed it for me. Thanks.

Also, if you have an A record named "mail", delete it.

I know this is an old thread, but I have a question about the last comment. You said "Also, if you have an A record named "mail", delete it."

My question is this:

I created a subdomain called honeypot on my domain. I have a mail record for my main domain, but nothing for the subdomain (when I look in the Advanced Editor for Zone Records list). So, do I still want to delete the mail record for my main domain?

For example, if I created, do I need to remove the A record for, or just any like

Just in the sub-domain you are donating. For example I have a domain with webpages and email &

I created a sub-domain for mobile pages, and donated the MX for the sub-domain. Only the sub-domain records should be changed.
