Email hosting only?


#1

I want to move my domain’s email service over to Dreamhost first, but my website may take a while longer. Do I need to select DNS only hosting and set up the MX records manually?

Edit: nevermind. Just tried it and the MX records stayed there.

Update - spoke too soon. DNS must have been a bit slow to update because now my MX records are gone :frowning:

Any suggestions?

You need to create a full hosted domain in DH, but once you complete the setup do NOT change the Name Server (NS) records as it says. Instead, change the MX records with whoever currently controls your domain to point to DH mail server.

Why use DH for mail, why not GoogleMail? Even DH suggest that!
