My domain name server is sitting with godaddy. I purchased a business pack with hostgator and host a number of different sites there.
When i purchased my business pack with hostgator, the provided me with a static IP. When i set up my A records, i initially pointed them to this dedicate IP and was going crazy why i was not seeing anything. Finally I looked in my cPanel and saw I had a shared IP as well.
So I changed the A records to point to this IP and everything worked.
Now I am trying to setup my emails and it is just not working.
Does anyone have experience working with hostgator and godaddy that can tell me where i should point my MX records to ?
