How do I host my domain and mail from different servers
Category: Dns Nameserver Changes
How do I setup my domain DNS records to point the domain name to inmotion servers but keep the mail server unchanged. The mail server is curently pointed via MX records.
Thank you for contacting us with your DNS question. To have your mail served from external email servers and your domain served from our home servers, it simply takes a change of a couple of DNS records.
I see your domain is using our name servers, so you will simply want to change your MX records to point to the third party external servers. Be sure to also set the location for email routing to external and to remove or overwrite the default MX record in the list, which points to our servers. You can find more information from our MX modification article.
