point domain to hostgator while keeping email with godday


I am working to build a website for a client and she purchased a domain from godaddy and was able to set up and email. The problem now is that wen I purchased the hosting from hostgator and changed the nameservers to the ones provided by hostgator her email through godday stopped working. She would like to keep her email at godaddy but I set up a wordpress website at hostgator. I have also tried changed the A record to point to to the IP address provided by hostgator but this did not link to the wordpress installed on my server.


does anyone know how I can leave the email part at godaddy and be able to link the domain name to the wordpress set up at hostgator?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@thepawmission  You want to keep the MX records with GoDaddy.  GoDaddy has a how to for HostGator and Workspace email here.   A step-by-step showing the GoDaddy settings is here.
