I’m trying to setup a custom domain using netlify DNS without messing up emails. (I’ve done that once but don’t know what I did wrong)
I’m trying to copy over the dns records but got the error cannot create new A or AAAA record while NETLIFY or NETLIFYv6 records exist.
My understanding is that this @ record will be replaced, so it’s ok that it is not transferred. But I should still copy over all the other records to make sure the mail service isn’t lost. Is that accurate?
Otherwise, if I don’t use Netlify DNS, can I just update the CNAME and A records of the www and apex domains without disrupting email?
