As Vercel is a platform focused on deployments, it does not provide a mail service for domains purchase with or transferred into it.

Third-Party Services

Because many domain providers do not offer a mail service, there are a number of third-party services that specifically offer this type of functionality and are enabled by adding DNS records.

Examples of this type of service include ImproxMX and Forward Email, however there are many more options available. For each provider, different DNS records are required to be added.

ImprovMX

For ImprovMX, you need to add the following DNS records, replacing example.com with your domain:

vercel dns add example.com '@' MX mx1.improvmx.com 10

Adding an MX record to a custom domain using the Vercel CLI.

vercel dns add example.com '@' MX mx2.improvmx.com 20

Adding an MX record to a custom domain using the Vercel CLI.

vercel dns add example.com '@' TXT 'v=spf1 include:spf.improvmx.com ~all'

Adding a TXT record to a custom domain using the Vercel CLI.

Forward Email

For Forward Email, you need to add the following DNS records, replacing example.com with your domain:
