Use Dreamhost for email only?


Is it possible to use Dreamhost for email only? I use EasyDNS for managing my DNS, and would prefer to keep the DNS control there, but I’d like to use Dreamhost for email.

Can I simply add the domain to my Dreamhost account and point the MX records in EasyDNS to Dreamhosts servers?

You sure can. But you’ll need to keep taps on your MX records here in case something changes and you need to update EasyDNS.

Once you create your domain here, click on the DNS link in the panel in Domains -> Manage Domains and copy those MX and mail server records over to EasyDNS.
