Can't get the right custom DNS changes for email

  1. The directions in DNS changes are confusing me. I need help formatting this info in the DNS changes for email:
    CNAME autodiscover EXCHANGE.PEGGYSKOMAL.COM.
    MX 10 MAIL1.DAEMONMAIL.NET.
    MX 20 MAIL2.DAEMONMAIL.NET.
    TXT v=spf1 include:mail.peggyskomal.com ~all
    A mail.peggyskomal.com 216.104.191.40

    I was told at the domain registry that I only needed:
    mail.peggyskomal.com
    MX 1 MAIL1.DAEMONMAIL.NET.
    MX 2 MAIL2.DAEMONMAIL.NET.

    But the formatting is not working. Please help! Thanks....Mark

    The blog I need help with is mrmbgraphics.wordpress.com.

  2. For starters - the DNS examples are examples to give you a guideline on how the records should look - don't use any more records than your email host tells you to use.

    My custom email only uses two lines -

    EXACTLY - what did your email host send you? Please post it here between the code tags -

    mail.peggyskomal.com is not complete - needs something at the start of the line

    I will also flag this for staff attention

  3. Hi auxclass,

    I was unaware of this email response - so sorry if I clogged up matters on the other.

    My email provider helped me post these DNS changes:

    A mail.peggyskomal.com 216.104.191.40
    MX 1 MAIL1.DAEMONMAIL.NET.
    MX 2 MAIL2.DAEMONMAIL.NET.

    Will these work?

    Thanks,
    Markmid

    @mrmb4 In checking your user account, I see that you have several blogs listed under it.

    Can you tell me the URL of the site you are trying to add email too? Who is hosting your email for you?

    Thanks for the additional info!
