DNS records for mailserver

I am redoing an existing site, but after linking their domain to netlify their emailserver stopped working, i’ve been told to put an A record, an AAAA record, and a TXT record in the DNS, which supposedly is purely to make email work again.

Unfortunately I get the common problem of “dns_api damesdewit.nl - damesdewit.nl/AAAA: 400 - link exists, all config must be empty” (except for the TXT)

What should I do?

Well, you can’t host both a mailserver and webserver at the same address (at least if you are using netlify for your webservice), so you’d need to pick one or the other :slight_smile:

That’s what the error is saying in layman’s terms: you have webservice defined for that hostname. mailservice would have to go at a different name.
