Can't send email after mapping wordpress site to existing domain

  1. Hi
    I recently set up a new wordpress.com site to replace a friends existing website. We went through the process of mapping the new website to his existing domain name (hosted elsewhere).
    This is all working fine. The only problem I am having is with his emails.
    He is currently receiving emails to his old email address which is linked to his existing domain (i.e. [email redacted]), but he cannot send from this account.
    I have had a look about and found the details for changing the DNS records - but is this what I should be looking at? The host gave us this as their domain - is this what is required?: 213.175.197.40
    Thanks for any help!
    Heidi
