at first u need to say your domain where your server is as example we have
the internet IP
and we have registered the domain

so at IP a =
at the mx =

so now u need to say your email server (mercury) that he have to listen at
u can find it under
mercury core modul configuration
then local domains
here u need add new domain
local host or server = server
internet name =

now u need to know which want to use this domain ?!

configuration - manage local user
then add your user

now u can receive ur emails if u want send it too with this server
u need to configurate your smtp

configuration - smtp server - connection control
add restricton allow

set authenticated smtp con..... ok
set only authent......... ok
then give a name by
auth password file and edit
add the same user with same password

now ur server can receive and send emails (if ur firewall nothing block !?)

if u want more information pls use google it exsist so much manuals for it ;)
