I'm in the middle of launching a new website for an already-in-use domain. The domain has a complicated email system so we'd like to move that over to the new server a bit later on.
Currently the domain DNS is managed by the current webhost. I plan on moving the DNS management back to Network Solutions, then point the A record to the new website's IP. However, currently the DNS has the MX record the same as the A record.
When NetworkSolutions is managing the DNS, and I point the A record to the new IP, then the MX record can't be the A record..
Right now: A Record mydomain.com points to IP address 18.104.22.168 MX record mydomain.com points to IP address 22.214.171.124
What I want: A Record mydomain.com points to IP address of new server MX record somehow points to current existing mailserver
Does this even make sense?
