    Hi everyone!

    I am having problems with the custom DNS records. I received the information from register.com but I don't know how to format it:
    In C Name: mail.make-it-fabulous.com points to: webmail01.register.com
    In MX: make-it-fabulous.com Priority: High mx01.register.com; Medium mx03.register.com

    I looked at the responses given on similar topics but I didn't find a response that corresponds exactly to my situation.

    Can you help?

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is make-it-fabulous.com.

  2. Hi. The following support documents explains just how to format your DNS records so that WordPress.com understands them:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/custom-dns/#adding-custom-dns-records

    Regrettably, your provider did not provide you (no pun intended) with the priority numbers, so we'll have to improvise...

    CNAME MAIL WEBMAIL01.REGISTER.COM.
    MX 1 MX01.REGISTER.COM.
    MX 5 MX03.REGISTER.COM.

    Please advise if it works.

    Thank you for your response airodyssey!
    When I contacted my provider again on Friday night, I was told to use 10 for the priority.
    Here is what I entered:
    MX 10 MX01.REGISTER.COM
    MX 10 MX03.REGISTER.COM
    CNAME MAIL.MAKE-IT-FABULOUS.COM WEBMAIL01.REGISTER.COM

    I didn't get any error message and the information was saved but nothing has happened since. The email is still not working:-(

  4. Did you put the full stop character ( . period) at the end of the lines?

  5. Also, your CNAME record is wrong. Please follow the example I gave you, changing only the priority numbers.

    @auxclass: I did put the full stop character. I will try again and use airodyssey's example and I will keep you posted.
