Please provide step by step instructions for setting up dns records for an email server. The tutorial says create a mx record, but not where or how to create it. Other tutorials give conflicting information. Such as “create a mx record at your registrar”, the tutorial on dns says to point the mx record at the gmail servers, but I want to host my own email. I tried the modoboa setup that someone else suggested, but it was awful. Horrible software. I just want to send and receive emails and be able to use webmail. (because console email is not useful for attachments) I need for my website users to be able to have their own account too, and I’m not going to have them using a console.
