Yesterday I tried to set up domain mapping using a custom DNS record, but I can't get it to work. I want wordpress to host my site, but continue to have email hosted with my existing email host.
Here's what I did:
1. Change DNS server record with my domain provider to be the wordpress DNSs (NS1.WORDPRESS.COM etc)
2. Set up custom record for my DNS on wrodpress as follows:
MX 10 MAIL.ALLA2012.COM.AU.
A MAIL.ALLA2012.COM.AU 188.8.131.52
This is how my email hosting provider told me to make the custom record.
The problem is now when I go to login to my webmail I get an error - IMAP server not found.
Any ideas on how I should be setting this up??
The blog I need help with is alla2012.wordpress.com.
