doesn’t work… i need to update the mx records so they point to smtp.secureserver.net and mailstore1.secureserver.net

i’m on phone with godaddy… again, this pertains to email.

HOW DO I DO THIS? i don’t see this option in digital ocean.

under mx records in digital ocean there are only two options:

  1. enter hostname
  2. enter priority

what i am missing?? thank you

so the hostname is @smtp.secureserver.net and @mailstore1.secureserver.net ?

This is what I mean… GoDaddy sent me these requirements… I don’t see the “Points to” field:

Priority: 0 Host: @ Points to: SMTP.SECURESERVER.NET

Priority: 10 Host: @ Points to: MAILSTORE1.SECURESERVER.NET

What do you mean?

Please explain… how does this pertain to the “Points to” requirement per GoDaddy below?

Priority: 0 Host: @ Points to: SMTP.SECURESERVER.NET

Priority: 10 Host: @ Points to: MAILSTORE1.SECURESERVER.NET

In our DNS system there are two fields for each DNS record. The priority and the host. The priority can be set to most any number you want with mail servers with a lower number being given priority. The other field is the host name of the mail server. If you update the host name in your DNS records this will re-point your MX record to the new host.
