6 Comments on Setup MXGuardDog to Fight Spam on Windows Accounts

  1. Bill Bowman says:

    While looking up how to set up my email on my domain, this blog came across. Initially I thought I was in over my head. But with such a well explained and easy to follow explanation of the setup. I am more confident than ever that I will pull it off.
    Thanks

    This was very easy to setup. The jury is out on how well it will work, but anything is better than the spam that was flowing through my mail server and forwarded and not caught by gmail.

    I’m trying to set this up, but except the homepage, the rest of the site is completely blank(?)

      Hello,
      Can you please try now? I was able to register successfully without any issues so it is possible they were just running maintenance.

      Let us know if you’re still having issues.

      -Alex.

        yes, an hour later the site was up again. I did the whole setup thing, including changing my MX records. MX Guard keeps saying that I didn’t though. I know it can take up to 24 hours to propagate dns changes, so I have to be patient for 2 more hours.

    I just found out what may have been the problem. I filled in a Name value in the DNS records. After I removed these, all seems to work. So apparently you have to keep the Name of the MX records blank.
