Using Office 365 along with hosted email

Discussion in 'Site & Server Administration' started by pratik, Jan 6, 2019.

    I have bought a hosting plan at HostGator and it comes with a dedicated IP.
    I am currently using the email which comes with the hosting.

    After using it for a month I realized that emails do not work in certain countries. I mean if I am travelling to US my emails won't work. After doing some research I found that Office 365 would suit my need well.
    But since Office 365 is subscription based. I would like only new people on my domain to use Office 365 and others to use email hosted at HostGator.

    Can this be possible? Would I need to make a server setup for this? Mine is a startup and I really don't have resources to setup a server or hire an IT guy.

    Thanks in Advance for your feedbacks / solutions.

    If you use office 365 then you cannot use hostgator mail server as you will be changing your MX record.
    I would suggest you either use a a subdomain or different addon domain for using hostgators mail service.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I don't want to have sub domains or different domains for the same Company employees. I'll still search for some hybrid solution. If you come across anything please do share.
