I have my web hosting here with InMotion and my domain registration and email services through GoDaddy. Because of this, I need to change several settings to get both my website and email up and running at the same time. The last step is to add records to the zone file of my domain name here. However, I have no idea how to access the zone file editor. Is this something I can get to via cPanel?

Hi Meadhbha,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. It sounds like you need to create MX records to point your email to GoDaddy. This can be done through cPanel. Here's a few links you may find beneficial:
