I using another host to host a data driven website but I still want to use dreamhost email system...what dns setting do I need to input to have dreamhost host my email system?
I'm not sure but I think it is something to do with MX record. You may need to point the MX in the other host to DH. Wiki tells you how to how email in other servers. You may want to refer http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/KB_/_Account_Control_Panel_/_Mail_::_MX_Record and http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/MX_recordHowever, I think you should do this in the other server.
