If you have Domain Manager or web hosting services with us, but want to manage your emails with an external email provider, you can remove our default Mail Exchange (MX) records from the zone file of your domain.
In addition to removing default MX records, if you manage your emails externally you will need to make sure to add MX records that point to your external mail provider's mail exchange.
