hi - i am having problems with my domain email since changing dns settings in control panel.

i have changed advanced dns so that example.com points to an IP (third party server and host of my website)

and www.example.com points to the same IP as above

i want the email to be received and hosted on my server

mail.example.com points to my server IP address

the objective website hosted by another server

email to my domain my server

hope this makes sense?

thanks

Have you configured MX records for the mail server?

So, like McExp you need to make sure your MX record is pointing to the correct IP.

In your control panel, what changes did you make to 'example.com', was it just an 'A' record or others in addition?
