Email forwarding from Hover

Hi,

I have a domain registered with Hover & recently switched hosting from Wix to GoDaddy. 

When I made the hosting switch, my email forwarding to a Gmail account stopped working.

Can you let me know what I need to do to get email forwarding working again?

Many Thanks,

Pete

What you may need to do is update the MX record to point to your GoDaddy server and then setup the forwarding there - this assumes you have a cPanel server

Thank you - in the end I simply needed to add an email forwarder to my GoDaddy account  (cPanel > Email > Forwarders > Add Forwarder) without any MX updates or any other changes to my Hover or GoDaddy accounts
