Can I host a website on digital ocean but leave email at the old hosting company?
I have a wordpress install up and running, but am in way over my head when it comes to getting email working…or anything else server-related for that matter.
Is it possible to point the domain at the new website, but leave email running though my old server? It’s pair.
If anyone can point me toward a tutorial or something, I’d greatly appreciate it. I’ve had no luck googling. I’m guessing it involves changing MX records at the registrar, but I’m not sure what to change, or if email will work on the old server if the main domain is pointed elsewhere.
