I have BC from Creative Cloud Suite, so I have the cheapest possible plan for BC. Meaning I don't get any email hosting. So I was looking to host email outside of BC. I looked it up on google to see if it could be done (I'm really new with all this hosting stuff!), and I found that if you change the DNS zone and MX records to certain things you could. I had to delete the MX record I had set up prior to finding out BC won't host my email, and I went to set up an Advance DNS Records.. But I'm not sure what to do! There's a lot of information I'm not sure about, and I don't know what goes where!
I'd like to have godaddy host my email, and what I found is that I need to change my DNS zone to: mailstore1.secureserver.net and change MX records to 0 smtp.secureserver.net 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net
I may end up finding somewhere else to host email at a later point, but right now I just want to try to figure out how to do this so I'll be able to in the future. Any and all help is appreciated! Thank you
All you need to do is go to Admin > Site Settings > Site Domains and activate your new domain. You’ll have to enter an MX record for e-mail to be setup, which will be provided by godaddy.

Let me know how it goes
Thank you! I was just over comlicating things with the DNS zone then... :\ I wasn't too sure how to put in everything at first but I got it down! (I'm really new at this so I'm figuring things out as I go). The 0 priority didn't work though, so I changed it to 1 like someone else did on the topic you linked.
Thanks a lot for the help
