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

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
