I followed the official Netlify instructions on how to setup an custom Apex domain.
- Following case: With another provider (Strato), I registered a domain named
- In the provider’s domain interface for `example.com’, I set a A record ‘220.127.116.11’, and everything seems to work.
- The only that does not seem to work (or not anymore) are mails to email@example.com. No email to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ seems to arrive, though this worked before the migration to Netlify (from Vercel).
I’m aware MX records need to be inserted when Netlify’s own DNS is being used via the [Nameserver] (NS) (Netlify DNS | Netlify Docs) setup in my provider. However, I did not follow this setup and hence did not change the NS records of example.com.
Hence, my question:
Do I need to make any adjustment for my mail (MX) in Netlify, when only using the Apex-domain method? (or did I simply not wait long enough, since I changed it only six hours ago?)
