Hi,

I am going to be hosting a website that is already registered and hosted with another hosting company, the owner of the domain would like to have all of his emails still processed by the other hosting company’s server.

If I add a cname record for a domain on my server, would it be possible to point the new website to my server by adding that cname record in the dns records?

You need to modify the MX record in your DNS zone file to match the existing MX record on the server where the emails are being processed.
