Mail

Use Yandex.Mail for Business to manage corporate mail on your company's domain. You can create mailboxes that follow the login@example.org format, while their users can enjoy all the features of the Yandex.Mail web interface and app, including spam filters, automatic malware scanning, and more.

This service becomes available to your employees once you connect an email domain to your company. If you didn't connect a domain to your company, your employees can still use regular Yandex.Mail (in the format login@yandex.com).

Enabling Yandex.Mail

To enable Yandex.Mail in Yandex.Connect, connect an email domain to your organization and configure all the necessary DNS records:

  1. Log in to Yandex.Connect as an administrator.
  2. Set up DNS records for your domain so that you can use Yandex.Mail. There are two methods:

    • You can delegate the domain to Yandex servers. In that case, all DNS records are set up automatically.

    • If you don't want to delegate your domain to Yandex servers, you can set up DNS records for your domain using the website of your DNS hosting provider. Usually it's the same company that acts as your domain's registrar.
    Record type Subdomain name Priority Value
    MX @ 10 mx.yandex.net.
    TXT (SPF) @ N/A v=spf1 redirect=_spf.yandex.net
    TXT (DKIM) mail._domainkey N/A Copy the value from Yandex.Mail settings
    CNAME mail N/A domain.mail.yandex.net.

    If you want to learn more about setting up DNS records, read the following sections: MX record, SPF record, DKIM signature, CNAME record.

  3. Wait for the changes to take effect. It may take DNS servers up to 72 hours to exchange the updated DNS records.

  4. Go to the Domains page and make sure you connect an email domain to your company and there are no error messages.

    Once you do this, your employees gain access to Mail.
