Mail handling

I’m interested in your service, but want to be able to handle our own email using our own internal servers. In particular for redundancy purposes I want to setup multiple MX records with different MX priorities pointing at different hosts. Can Dreamhost handle this DNS configuration? If so is it through your Controlpanel or via manual DNS changes?


It’s possible, but you can only (currently) define one MX from the web admin panel.

We can add custom MX records for you (or you can add them yourself on Code Warrior or Strictly Business plans with the DNS control panel).

If you want to do this, don’t add a mail service to the domain (or remove an already-existing mail service).
