We will guide you through the process of setting up your email hosting here.

To setup Migadu all you need is access to your DNS manager of your domain. We need to add some DNS records in order to get our email working.

We will add 5 DNS records in total and setup our new free email on our own domain.

Login to your DNS manager, whatever you are using. I am using cloudflare here.

Head to Migadu's site and register a free account from here. You will need to verify your email and then login into the account.

Now, it will take some for Migadu to detect the changes we have made to our DNS records, as DNS propagation takes time. After some time, usually above 30mins, Migadu will automatically detect the records and activate your account.

You should log into your account like every 15 minutes and check if our domain is on Migadu. After the records are detected you will get something like this.
