    Hello

    How to setup DNS for the following:

    example.com -> website is on remote server: 1.1.1.1
    example.com -> mail on local server: 2.2.2.2

    this is clear: example.com IN A 1.1.1.1
    unclear: how to setup MX record to receiving mail on local 2.2.2.2 server?

    thank you

    Zoltan

    Hello :)

    Your MX record will need to be a hostname that points to an IP address of the local server. EX:

    You can modify the DNS Zone if the DNS is handled on the cPanel server via:

    "WHM Home » DNS Functions » Edit DNS Zone"

    Thank you.
