Adding your e-mail domain to Binox is a crucial step in organizing and streamlining your sales and marketing campaigns. Verified domains allows you to add the verified senders for your email campaigns automatically, in this tutorial we will walk you through the process of adding your domain to Binox.

Step 1: Authenticate your Domain on Binox.

  • Click on your "Profile picture icon" in the upper right corner and select "My Account" on the drop-down options.

  • Click on "Products and Add-ons" select “Binox Sales CRM” and click on "Authenticate" Under Domain Authentication.

  • On the “Sender Authentication” page, type in your Domain name and click on Next.

    Important: The domain name should not include ‘http’ or ‘https’ or ‘www’. or '/’.


Note: The domain name should always be “lower case”.

  • To “Authenticate your Domain” We need to install the following records to the DNS section to complete the process.


Step 2: Adding an MX Record on Go Daddy.

Note: Most DNS updates take up to 48 hours to update global.

Add MX (Mail Exchanger) records in your DNS zone file when your domain is using GoDaddy nameservers. MX records connect to your email service, like Google email or Microsoft 365. We'll automatically add MX records when your domain is using GoDaddy nameservers and email. Adding new MX records may interfere with any existing MX records for your current email service.

1. Sign in to your GoDaddy Domain Portfolio.

2. Select Domain Edit Options (3-dots) next to your ”domain and then select Edit DNS. You may need to scroll down to see the Edit DNS option.

3. Select Add to add a new record.

o Name The domain or subdomain for the MX record. Use @ to deliver email to your root domain or use a subdomain such as www or mail. Click on the “Copy” Icon on Binox and paste it into your GoDaddy “Name” field.
