Hi. I am transferring my domain to Dreamhost and my e-mail to GoDaddy. I had no trouble updating the DNS server information, and my new site has already propogated. I am, however, having some trouble with the MX server changes.
I am supposed to change my MX servers to the following:
mx priority 0 - smtp.secureserver.net
mx priority 10 - mailstore1.secureserver.net
So in the “Custom MX Record” section of Dreamhost, I put the following information, per the Dreamhost Wiki here:
So my two listings say:
In the Wiki, it says to input the listing as “0 smtp.secureserver.net.” (note the period at the end). However, when I save my changes and look at the listing, there is no period listed.
My two questions are:
- Am I doing something incorrectly?
- Am I to assume that, once I do this correctly, that anything going to my domain (*@mydomain.com) is then forwarded to GoDaddy?
Thanks very much for your help.
