Hello, I'm trying to get my hands dirty with this software. However I'm missing a critical step somewhere. We currently have our ISP maintain POP3 email accounts for our internet domain. I want to start maintaining our email domain internally using SMTP via Kerio. I have Kerio working fine for internal emails but I'm missing how I go about setting up the SMTP side of things to send and receive external email. Don't I need to communicate with my ISP and take control of the DNS records or something similar?

Thanks for any help! Looking forward to using this product more

You need to change your domain MX records to point to your mailserver. You or someone else indeed have to change DNS settings. The entry with the lowest preference number is the first to receive a request for mail delivery.

example: MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = MX preference = 20, mail exchanger =

You can view these on Windows with nslookup.
set type=mx
