Web hosting and third party email service
Created#More Posted time:Jul 12, 2018 19:12 PM
Sorry for my bad english, it is not my native language.
I have an Alibaba Cloud web hosting with a bound third party domain name.
I would like to use Alibaba Direct Mail to be able to receive emails at an address email@example.com.
So I need to add MX and TXT records in AlibabaCloud DNS.
BUT I already have CNAME records to access my website with my domain name.
If I have understood correctly, it's not possible to have MX records with CNAME records (I get an error message when I try it).
So I should have an A record, but I can't have the IP address of Alibaba Cloud servers (so I chose the CNAME records).
I have absolutely no idea how I could receive emails from my clients with a third party domain name and using Alibaba Direct Mail.
Thank you in advance !

Thank you for your detailed answers.
I'm using Gandi (french provider) for my domain.
I will search for the best email service for my needs.
Thank you !
