How can I use an existing email account on my site?

To maintain an existing email account elsewhere, you need to setup your domain so that DevHub hosts just the website portion of your domain. This is done via an A-Record. Instructions for how to host your site using A-Records can be found on Step #1 here:

Once your site is hosted via A-Records, you will then need to ensure that the MX Records (Mail records) are set on your domain. If you have an email account through your Domain Registrar (i.e. GoDaddy), then most likely these settings are already in place and your email should work.

If not, you will need to add to your domain the MX Records (and possibly an A-Record) provided by your email provider.

i.e. MX 10

    New Messenger App
    OneTime messenger app is available for both for iPhone and Android provided it has latest android versions installed in it along with latest version of Google play services. It is a perfect alternative to SMS since it uses your phone’s Internet connection so you don’t have to pay for every message which you send for your loved ones. Though OneTime account can only be registered with one number, but you can use it after you have registered your phone on various devices such as tablet, iPad or Desktop, etc using the multiple device code. With the multi device code the company will link your other devices to your phone number that is already registered. You don’t need a sim card in your other device to use OneTime you only need an Internet connection on your device. But to avail these benefits you should not exceeded your data limit and you should be connected to a free WI- FI network. The advantage of using this service is that, messaging over OneTime does not cost you extra. When you download OneTime, the app is connected to your Google Account or your Apple Id respectively. This means you can reinstall the app to new or reset devices without purchasing it again and get all future updates without additional payment. If you can't find OneTime you previously purchased or you're being asked to purchase OneTime although you already bought it on Google Play, make sure you're signed in to the same account as when you made your purchase
