|Sending Domains||The domains that will be responsible to relay emails.|
Drag the IP address to any domain panel to be used under respective group. We have however divided the IP addresses equally for the best configuration. You have an option to create a single SMTP for all IP addresses within the group, or to create an individual SMTP for every IP address.
|Domain name||The sending domain that will appear in mail headers|
|IP addresses||These are the IP addresses that Mumara will configure under the mentioned sending domain. By default, Mumara does the sorting itself by distributing an equal number of IP addresses among all sending domains, but you always have an option to resort according to your requirement by dragging to any palette.
One SMTP account per IP: It will bind single IP to each SMTP account it will create
One SMTP account for all IP(s): It will create a single SMTP account and bind all IPs to it and PowerMTA will handle the rotation

Mumara generates Forward DNS, Reverse DNS, CNAME, and Domain Keys to get your sending domains authenticated. Expand the toggle(s) to get the values of the DNS entries for the sending domains. Moreover, you can click on the Download button and update them later.
|Host||This field contains the host key that is a prefix of your domain name. Make sure just to copy the host value (neglecting the main domain) to your domain's DNS panel as that is not necessary|

|Value||While creating the host entry, paste the value of it|
It shows the configuration file that has been generated as per your inputs. If you want to tweak anything in the configuration file, you can do it in this step but make sure that you really know what you are doing.
