Go daddy MX records

  1. blog is on wordpress and thedomain and email are hosted with godaddy. I pointed the domain to wordpress so reinaweiner.com now points to the blog. Then her [edited by moderator]@reinaweiner.com email address stopped working so I got the mx records from godaddy:

    MX Records
    0 smtp.secureserver.net
    10 mailstore1.secureserver.net

    ...and added them to wordpress as:

    MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net
    MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net

    but wordpress inverts to:

    MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net
    MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net

    Will it still work? It is still in "MX record validation mode" so I can't tell if I'm stuck in this mode because the records are incorrect of if it's still propagating. Any help would be appreciated!

    The blog I need help with is reinaweiner.com.

  2. I'm trying the same thing as we speak. Did your issue get resolved?

  3. I'm having this same issue as well, and GoDaddy's website is completely unhelpful. Any luck getting the issue resolved?

  4. Perhaps you should contact staff here directly: http://support.wordpress.com/contact

  5. @reinarocks,
    I've hidden the actual email address in your post.

    Maybe this is resolved for Reina via support ticket, but for reference:

    The records needs be entered following the format described in our custom DNS support page.

    So in this case, the values need to be:

    MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net.<br /> MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.

    Note the period at the end of each line.

  6. Thank you so much Happiness Engineer!!! This is exactly what I needed to fix my problem.

  7. I have the same issue, it inverted my entry after I saved it, and still isn't working?

  8. The order of the records doesn't matter.
