Domain mapping with existing email account

  1. How do I find the A Record and CName record for wordpress.com? I would like to map my blog robetslandscapes.wordpress.com to a site I own, http://www.robertslandscapes.com. The site and my business email are currently hosted at Yahoo Small Business. I need to be able to enter a new A Record and CNAME Record on the Yahoo Small business site so the domain is mapped to wordpress but my email remains with yahoo. Once i get this all set I will be downgrading my webhosting account at Yahoo to a custom mailbox account. Thanks.

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

  2. To map an existing domain, here's the guide http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

  3. Yes, I've seen that page which was helpful but it doesn't seem to answer my question - what are the A Record and CName record for wordpress.com? I need to be able to add those into the DNS records over at Yahoo. Where do I go to find the A Record and CName record for wordpress.com?

    I have exactly the same issue. I spoke to Yahoo to try to get the MX records. They said that they don't have public MX records and that I need to get WordPress.Com's A or CName record and change it on Yahoo's end. Can anyone advise?
