godaddy email forwarding with a domain hosted on a cpanel server

Who is it for

You are moving away from godaddy web hosting to a new server but still want to keep godaddy’s email service. (maybe you have 30 users and do not want to migrate them, maybe your contract isn’t up yet.)

Why do you need to have godaddy email forwarding

If you do not change your MX record to forward your email from the new server to your existing email godaddy account, your email will stop working when the domain propagates to the new server.
