Setting up Fastmail with Vercel

2 min read
Hey! Thanks for stopping by! Just a word of warning, this post is over 2 years old, . If there's technical information in here it's more than likely out of date.

I’ve started using Fastmail, here’s how I set it up with Vercel for use with my own domains.

If you’re interested in giving Fastmail a go then you can use my referral code for a 10% discount on the first year of Fastmail.

I’m not going to be selling any of the features here so let’s get on with configuring it for your own domain.

From the Fastmail settings there’s an option to add your own domains, click the + Add Domain button, then enter your domain name. There’ll be a check for the domain make sure it is valid. Then you’re prompted to confirm you own the domain.

Once you have confirmed ownership you’re then prompted to select the provider, I use Namecheap so I’ve selected that.

I have my DNS set to Vercel from Namecheap so I can manage it all through Vercel.

All of the settings in the Fastmail documentation I can add with the Vercel CLI.

MX records

vc dns add @ MX 10
vc dns add @ MX 20

CNAME records

vc dns add fm1._domainkey CNAME
vc dns add fm2._domainkey CNAME
vc dns add fm3._domainkey CNAME

TXT records

vc dns add @ TXT 'v=spf1 ?all'
