My incoming gmail isn't working after moving my blog

  1. I used to have my domain mapped to wordpress but I'm now self-hosting it on Web Synthesis (which doesn't have domain management). When I did domain mapping, I added email via Google Apps. Since I moved my blog, I no longer receive incoming mail.
    "Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain socialbizstrategy.com by smtp.secureserver.net. [68.178.213.37]."

    What I did:

  2. I removed the old MX records, went to Google Apps to do the process again for getting the MX records, went to Edit DNS page and added them. Result: incoming mail is still not working (after 24 hours).
  3. I did not remove the verification code that was originally there. Meaning I didn't undergo a second verification.
  4. I'm also still getting this message on my Edit DNS page:
    Your nameservers need to be set to NS1.WORDPRESS.COM and NS2.WORDPRESS.COM for these DNS records to work. If you have already updated the nameservers you can ignore this message; it will stop appearing soon.
  5. Can a staff please check if I put the right MX records? Should I have Google verify my site again?

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is socialbizstrategy.com.

  • It looks like you need to go to your domain registrar and set the name servers as specified.

  • Just to clarify if you are not pointing at WordPress name-servers then nobody will even see your WordPRess MX settings

  • Thank you Tandava108. But I have specified the name servers for my new host already. I have moved my blog from wordpress.com to a new domain.

  • Can anybody of the staff help me?

  • If you have moved from WordPress.com you need to address these questions to the host that you have moved to! WodPress no longer has control over your domain, MX records, or anthing

  • If you have moved from WordPress.com you need to address these questions to the host that you have moved to! WodPress no longer has control over your domain, MX records, or anthing

  • Tandava108 -- WordPress has control over my DNS and MX. My new hosting does not provide DNS or email services. just web hosting.

  • No: its under control of DOMAINCONTROL.COM:

    Domain Name: SOCIALBIZSTRATEGY.COM
    Registrar URL: http://www.wildwestdomains.com
    Registrant Name: Registration Private
    Registrant Organization: Domains By Proxy, LLC
    Name Server: NS11.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
    Name Server: NS12.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
    DNSSEC: unsigned

  • Once you switched the domainservers to NS11.DOMAINCONTROL.COM they have control over your A record, MX records, etc.
