Ok here are my server details.
rustyriley.com has the following NAME SERVERS (NS)
below are my MX and A record information
rustyriley.com A 18.104.22.168
mail.rustyriley.com MX (10) 22.214.171.124
mail.rustyriley.com A 126.96.36.199
is that right or is that still wrong? Sorry for being such an idiot when it comes to dns management.
