Does Premium Plus finally let us have the ability to change MX Records so we can use Microsoft Exchange?

The email server is extremely archaic at Wealthy Affiliate. I've

Nope, you don't gain access to MX records. Unlike other registers there is no cPanel. This is the main reason I don't host my main websites here.

This hosting is great for beginners, but not for more advance users.

Just my 2 cents.

Makes sense.

Leomery,

Well, they finally worked with me on MX records, but they couldn't get all the necessary DNS set up. I do wish we had a Cpanel because I could definitely do it myself.

However, I worked with Microsoft and I have a workaround...I'm using my main website's email address as a shared mailbox with the domain I needed set up here, which is fine for now.

Just as you said, my main business can never move to these servers, however.

I am grateful to be able to finally be able to send and receive professional looking emails today in my blogger/influencer business though. I even have a real signature line!

SiteSupport can manage DNS records for you, you just need to drop them a message & they'll arrange the records as per your request.

I've done this for YEARS and they say they can't manage MX records.

They finally did, but they don't have enough knowledge to set it up correctly for seamlessness.

I am grateful to finally at least have MX records pointed so I was able to create a work around.

A lot of work, but it was better than leaving WA.

Cool :)

Hi, have you asked site support

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Click yes, not listed and other to get to them.

Premium Plus is an upgraded bundle and webmail would work on it same as Premium.

However, you can learn more here

Yes, I've asked for years. I just went in to ask this and it put me in community support because I wasn't asking about a specific website.

I'll ask again, but this definitely doesn't answer the question about MX record management. Webmail is not robust email. Far from it.

Hi, you need choose yes , not listed and other. You would get into site support.

Thanks AbieAJ,

I actually asked Support and they were able to get part of the DNS setup done, but it's not perfect.

With the help of Microsoft, I have a workaround that is working for me now.

Hopefully one day there will be a Cpanel here for the DNS setup, but for now, we are at the mercy of Support and their limited knowledge of Enterprise Email. With Microsoft Exchange (Office 365) you also need Autodisover set up along with the MX records.

The support team could never get the Autodiscover set up correctly.

Again, I have a workaround, but it should be more seamless than this.

Since it's not seamless I can't move my main business to the WA servers, but this workaround will be fine for my side business domains hosted here.

All and all after 3 years of asking for better email the Support Team here at least worked with me so I am grateful!

Hey Aloha,

Google searching "Oceanwp Theme and used Elementor - social media icons don't display correctly on 2 pages" (without the quotation marks, of course) I was offered 1 interesting video and several posts with help in solving this issue.

You could run the same or similar search and watch the video and read through some of the posts.

Do remember to BACKUP your website BEFORE making any changes so that you if worse comes to worse with any changes you make that you can always restore your website.

Hope you find this helpful.
