We have a website hosted on a server that does not have any type of mail system installed.
I want to setup an IMAP and POP email system for my company. We want email@example.com (in otherwords, not firstname.lastname@example.org) - and I know you can setup Google Apps and host email through them, and just setup MX records, but we do not want to use Google. I also know you can use MS Exchange... but again - not really interested in paying if we can avoid it.
So I was wondering....
If our primary server does not have mail installed... but we also have a cpanel account with a separate host.... is it somehow possible to host our website on the server it's on now, but somehow connect the email to the cpanel account we have with another provider - either by changing MX records... CNAME records, or A records......? Do we need a dedicated IP address with the cpanel account....? How would we configure something like that?
Any guidance would be extremely appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance.
