Hi, I need to adjust the MX record settings under my domain, so that “Email Forwarding” that I have hosted on another service can forward emails to my personal accounts.

As I understand it, I need to change to MX Recod settings on my account with Digital Ocean.

I filed a ticket a couple days ago but, I got no response other than the auto-generated reply.

Any help would be appreaciated. Thx.

This is not to hard to do.

Lets say before you set your domains nameservers to digitalocean you were using a cPanel service on Godaddy, Bluehost or the like with an IP of 162.66.89.12 (fakeip).

Within you digitalocean networking/dns configuration you will need to ad an A:Record for your domain or specifically a sub domain that points to the previous cPanel accounts IP address. Lets say thats mail.mydomain.com

Once you have this done you will update your MX record(s) in digitalocean networking/dns to point to mail.mydomain.com

You will also need to add +a:mail.mydomain.com to your SPF txt record.
