Hosting website on DO but using shared hosting mail servers
I recently migrated my site from a shared hosting account on StableHost.com over to DO.
The file migration went smoothly (mostly), however, I have a question about the mail. With Stablehost, I managed everything through cpanel and configured my incoming and outgoing mail servers with Gmail based on the configuration info obtained from cpanel.
However, now that I’ve change my dns information to point to digitalocean servers, I’ve stopped receiving emails. I’m assuming there is something wrong that I have to change with the MX entries (on DO or on StableHost?)
Is it possible for me to keep using my old shared stablehost account just for the mail services (avoiding setting up my own mail servers on DO)? How do I configure this to fix my email?
