Custom Email/DNS Issues

  1. This is for the website: http://l-hconsulting.com. I'm trying to set up my Network Solutions email host account to link with this website. I believe I have everything entered in right, here is what I have entered:

    MX 10 INBOUND.L-HCONSULTING.COM.NETSOLMAIL.NET.
    A mail 72.233.2.58
    A mail 72.233.69.6
    A mail 74.200.243.251
    A mail 74.200.244.59
    A mail 76.74.254.120
    A mail 76.74.254.123

    When I try to access my mail at http://mail.l-hconsulting.com, it takes me to the root domain. Please help me out and point me in the right direction. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is l-hconsulting.com.

  2. For starters all your A records point to WordPress.COM servers, they need to point to your real mail servers. Network Solutions should have some guidelines to point things to their mail servers. The code below is what it took for me to use my old host (names changed to protect my email). I have a static IP address for my mail and that might be different for you.

    <br /> A mail 255.255.255.255<br /> MX 10 mail.my-domain.com.<br />

    The Staff also was of great help when I moved as my old host used a bit different syntax than WordPress.COM DNS mapping uses.
