I would like to know the complete steps for getting Mail in a Box running. In particular, how to set up the Nameservers.
I have seen the video for Mail in a Box. It shows a Namecheap example.
I have one domain; e.g., domain.com. This domain handles my website and my emails. I have two servers - one for my website and one for email. The email server has 1GiB. Perhaps I should just purchase a separate domain for email?
“If you add a name server or change the name of a name server and specify a name that is a subdomain of the domain that you’re updating (for example, ns1.example.com in the domain example.com), Amazon Route 53 prompts you to specify one or more IP addresses for the name server. These IP addresses are known as glue records.”
“If you do have an active website at your domain, make sure to set up the appropriate additional DNS records on your Mail-in-a-Box server. Otherwise, your domain won’t resolve to your website. You can copy your existing DNS records to make sure everything works the same.”
I am not sure what this message from Digital Ocean means from a practical standpoint; i.e., in terms of the steps I need to take. I have an active website at my domain.
Also, Amazon say to add the following: (for example, ns1.example.com in the domain example.com),
Digital Ocean says ns1.box.example.com yourserverip and then example.com NS ns1.box.example.com
