I recently created a GoDaddy hosted website to replace my Yahoo Small Business site. My domain name is registered at NameSecure. Once I changed the DNS at NameSecure to point to my GoDaddy site, my Yahoo Small Business e-mail stopped working. I thought that I just needed to change the MX settings on my GoDaddy account to the Yahoo settings. However, the GoDaddy DNS settings page will not accept the Yahoo settings (mx1.biz.mail.yahoo.com & mx5.biz.mail.yahoo.com). I would like to continue using the Yahoo Small Business e-mail, as everyone in my business is already set up with it. What do I need to do to accomplish this?

You should be able to continue using your email with your current provider by updating your MX records. If you have confirmed the DNS is hosted with us, you will need to add "@" as the host and the record (mx1.biz.mail.yahoo.com & mx5.biz.mail.yahoo.com) in the points to section. You will need to create two records and remove any other MX records. The guide here: https://www.godaddy.com/help/add-an-mx-record-19234 explains how to do this. If you continue to receive an error, please provide the exact error you're seeing.
