Custom Email

Has anyone used a custom domain name and set up email through another provider? I really want custom email, but I'm not sure how to go about it. Thanks!

    If you are saying that you have your own domain which includes email, and have access to the DNS in your cpanel. Then in your DNS manager you need to change the mail setting from a Cname entry to an A Record entry. Also edit the MX entry to be mail.yourdomain.com

    Sorry if this a bit confusing, there may be someone who can explain a bit better.

    Johnlaurence's answer is correct.

    To set up personal email hosting with the Zenfolio custom domain change your "mail.yourdomain.com" from a Cname to an A Type with your hosting IP as the record.

    Then change the MX entry in your mail settings to "mail.yourdomain.com"

    Thanks for the help!
