I am currently building a website for a client who purchased their own domain and email on Godaddy. They have been using the email for a considerable amount of time now and only recently decided to get a website which is where I come in. There is a godaddy mobile app which is what the client uses to check their email on mobile devices and if on a desktop / laptop they just log into godaddy so they dont use any other email clients than that.
I re-directed the DNS (prior to realising that the client had email through godaddy) to my hosting provider and that all worked fine except it broke the email. Godaddy provides MX records and also CNAME but the CNAME just gives details for pop, imap and SMTP. Arent these A records?
If my client is only using Godaddy and no external clients then will I get away with just supplying the correct MX records to my hosting provider and give godaddy the new ns records?
Just to clarify. I need to host the website with a separate host but keep the email functionality on godaddy...is this possible?
