I currently have a website hosted in New Zealand, which is best for the client base as they’re all NZ’ers. However it’s also my main email.
The problem is the NZ host’s email servers are rather flakey, which is a pain as i need to recieve emails on multiple computers, so I am looking to use IMAP. BUT NZ hosts charge about the same for 50meg hosting as my unlimited dreamhost account costs. 50meg won’t do for all my emails if I go IMAP so I want to take advantage of my dreamhost account and use it for the email side of that domain.
I can edit the MX entries on the NZ hosting, but I’m unsure of how to set it up to host email on dreamhost. Do I set it up as a fully hosted domain but not edit the DNS records of the domain?
