I have a hostgator account and use them for email. They have redirected the DNS to Netlify (they don’t seem able to transfer only the hosting for some reason) and this appears to be working properly, but the email is no longer working.
They have given me the appropriate DNS settings for the email forwarding (using ‘A’ type rather than ‘MX’), and I have entered these settings to my DNS settings on Netlify, but if I go to leafdns.com to review the dns settings the target for the ‘A’ type records are being directed to a different IP address than the one that I specified for the DNS settings.
(So hostgator is not receiving any of the email redirects… so I am not getting any emails)
Please advise if there is something else I need to do on the Netlify side to direct the mail back to hostgator (according to the settings that I have already entered in Netlify)
