Hello everyone. I have a friend who is using Dreamhost as their primary email. He has a website on my server and I need to get the MX information from Dreamhost to add to my server. Is there an easy way to do this, or do I have to contact support to get the information? -Thanks
One of these might be what you’re looking for:
I don’t think you understand my question. I have his website setup on my server. I have to add an mx record on my end so that when someone emails him and it hits my server, the mx record tells the email to go to Dreamhost.
So you’re hosting the DNS, but Dreamhost is handling the mail? Ask the owner of the domain to log in to the DH control panel and look at the zone files (domains->DNS). When I opened my account, there was a DH-generated zone file shown, even though I hadn’t yet changed my domain’s nameservers away from my own server. This will show you what MX hosts your friend should be using.
