CNAME for MX - Foreign domain DNS setup


#1

I’ve got some domains parked on GratisDNS.dk that I want to point to my DH hosting plan. Starting up with domain familikurser.com I’ve configured DNS at GratisDNS.dk like below. The website runs fine, but mail is hanging (not connenting).

Can someone guide me here – is the CNAME below correct?

A records:
Host: familiekurser.com
IP: 173.236.222.207

Host: *.familiekurser.com
IP: 173.236.222.207

MX:
Host: familiekurser.com
Mail exchange: mx1.sub5.homie.mail.dreamhost.com

CNAME:
Host: mail.familiekurser.com
Canonical name: sub5.homie.mail.dreamhost.com

The Nameservers provided by GratisDNS.dk are unchangeable:
familiekurser.com ns1.gratisdns.dk
familiekurser.com ns2.gratisdns.dk
familiekurser.com ns3.gratisdns.dk
familiekurser.com ns4.gratisdns.dk
familiekurser.com ns5.gratisdns.dk
