Domain Redirect MX Record settings don't seem to work

  1. Hi...I did a domain redirect from http://www.camicus.com (my personal domain) to camicusdotorg.wordpress.com earlier this week. The domain redirect is working perfectly but I don't seem to be able to collect mail at [email redacted]. Oddly the email worked for most of the day after the domain redirect had taken place.

    I've checked the MX Records and I think they're correct:
    On WordPress (under custom DNS Records):
    MX 10 primary-mail.mailhoster.co.uk.
    MX 20 secondary-mail.mailhoster.co.uk.

    On Xcalibre (Hosts the camicus.com domain) under MX Records:
    MX 10 primary-mail.mailhoster.co.uk.
    MX 20 secondary-mail.mailhoster.co.uk.

    The error that I'm getting from my email client is:

    Unable to send or receive messages for the Camicus (orhan) account. The email server returned an error.

    Server Error: 0x800CCC90
    Server Response: -ERR Cannot connect to POP server 72.233.2.58 (72.233.2.58:110), connect error 10061
    Server: 'pop3.camicus.com'
    Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC90
    Protocol: POP3
    Port: 110
    Secure(SSL): No

    There are no C-Records set up for the camicus.com domain on Xcalibre but the A records for Pop3, smtp and webmail are:

    Pop3: 217.8.240.15
    smtp: 94.136.40.220
    webmail: 217.8.240.67

    There are no A records currently set up in my WordPress domain settings. If someone could please tell me what's going wrong and what (if anything) I need to change in my MX domain record settings I'd really appreciate it.

    I had wondered whether this was just a propagation problem, but it's been out now for 12 hours and the domain redirect went in about 72 hours ago.

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

  2. I have a workaround for this. If I refer directly to the IP addresses for the pop3 and smtp servers there never has to be a domain redirect so I get my email fine. I'd still like to know what's going wrong with my MX record settings though if there are any email geniuses out there.

    Thanks!
