Web hosting and e-mail

Hi I would like to host multiple WP sites on a VPS and I found one of tutorials on how to do that. Excellent. However, I would like to keep e-mail management (e-mail accounts and forwarding) on my DNS provider and use the digital ocean VPS for web hosting only. Is there a way to do that? For example, if I switch the DNS servers on my provider to digital ocean, I can no longer have them manage e-mails.

<b>“Is there a way to do that?”</b> <br> <br>Yes. First, decide where you want to manage your DNS records. If you want to use DigitalOcean’s DNS Manager, simply copy your current <code>MX</code> record(s) into D.O.'s DNS control panel. <br> <br>If you want to keep your DNS records where they’re at, simply leave your <code>MX</code> records as they are and only add the necessary <code>A</code> and <code>CNAME</code> records pointing to your DigitalOcean droplet(s).
