Handling email from external domain

I am moving from another hosting company to DH. I would like to leave my domains registered with the other company, but use a mailbox at DH. Is this possible? If so, how would this be done? Is this what the MX record is used for? I would like to minimize downtime of my main email account.


Setting up all your domains and adding the relevant email addresses in your Panel at DreamHost before switching the MX or NameServer info at your current registrar will minimise any potential downtime.
