Email Domains

Add these recordsCustom email domains enable different aliases for your agents and ticket creation for inbound emails.

To start, verify your domain in Settings → Sub-Company → Email Domains → Create Email Domain.

Enter the domain you would like to use for your team in the Domain field. You can put either a root domain ( or a subdomain (

The Automatic Security option depends on your specific needs. It's generally best to verify a sub-domain and turn on automatic security.

If you are verifying a subdomain, it is always almost preferred to Enable Automatic Security. This is option requires less configuration. In this case, you will need to add three CNAME records to your domain host. For guidance on this, check your domain provider's documentation.

If you are verifying a root domain, you must Disable Automatic Security. This configuration is typically not recommended unless you are confident in your implementation. This is because verifying a root domain will have unintended consequences in many cases, such as if you are using your standard business email through your root domain.

After adding your domain records, click Verify. Once verified, the Senders tab will be activated, allowing you to configure different emails for sending and receiving.

Note! Different domains hosts have different ways to specify the records, which is not only copy+paste from the Proto Email Domain records. Be sure to check your domain host's documentation for specific instructions.

Popular domain hosts like GoDaddy and Namecheap will automatically add your root domain to DNS records. For instance, if your domain is, and your CNAME record is, you should add mail as the host instead of The "@" symbol is used to represent the root domain. For example, if adding a record for, you should add "@" as the host.

Make sure that your domain name is not duplicated in the values (e.g., that you enter your subdomain just like mysubdomain and not like "@" will point the root domain (for example The MX records go in a different section.
