My domain host (not webhost) is GoDaddy. I set up the MX record to point to Gmail. I use a free host (say examplehost.com) without static IP, so cannot set my A record to that examplehost.com. So I forwarded my domain to that examplehost.com, is my mx record broken? (no longer works with Gmail).


After waiting a while, now my gmail accounts for custom domains have received emails. So I guess the answer is NO, it's not broken. Hope it helps someone later
