On November 7, 2017, we will change the email address of the envelope sender for AutoDNS system responses. 

The adjustments at a glance

#######################################################

Please note: The system messages will still be sent from the IP 62.116.129.216.

What this means for you:
If you filter emails from AutoDNS or process them automatically, we kindly ask you to check your configurations and, if necessary, to update the filters of your mail server and other applications you use. 

We recommend you to add the new email addresses to your systems and filters already now. Thus, you make sure that all messages will continue to reliably be delivered and processed without delay after the adjustment.

Do you have any questions? Our colleagues from Domain Services will be happy to support you at domains@internetx.com or via phone at +49 941 59559-482.
