– Zoho will check if the MX records are correctly configured and display a success message if everything is in order.


6. Wait for DNS propagation:
– DNS changes may take some time to propagate across the internet.
– It typically takes a few hours, but in some cases, it can take up to 48 hours for the changes to take effect.

That’s it! You have successfully configured Zoho MX records in DreamHost. Now, all incoming emails for your domain will be directed to Zoho’s mail servers.

Remember, if you’re using any other email services or have existing MX records, make sure to remove or update them accordingly to avoid any conflicts. It’s always a good idea to double-check your settings and test your email after making any changes.
