I am possibly confused as to how this works. I have hosting with inmotion, and inmotion hosts and is registrar for my website. However, i have an old site that I have parked and pointed to called I want to set the email addresses for that domain to be handled by inmotion's server, rather than the current yahoo email server. I think that I need proper MX records to enter in at yahoo, who is also the registrar for, to make sure emails go to inmotion. I already set the DNS name servers to inmotion (just a few minutes ago). But I do not know the correct info for the MX record--or do I need to even worry about that? Thanks and I hope my question makes sense, because I barely know what I am talking about.

Hello John!

<a href="">Setting the nameservers</a> to point to your InMotion Hosting server will by default point your <a href="">MX records to our server</a>. If you set the nameservers to ours and added the domain as a <a href="">parked domain in your cPanel</a>, you can <a href="">make email accounts</a> with it and they will start working <a href="">within 24 hours</a> on our server.

Best Regards,
James R
