Update MX Records in order to receive emails

  1. Hi there,

    I have configured the DNS settings on our domain provider 123-reg with the following details as instructed:
    ns1.wordpress.com
    ns2.wordpress.com
    ns3.wordpress.com

    But as it seems in order to receive e-mails you would need to update the MX records and add mx0.123-reg.co.uk priority 10 and mx1.123-reg.co.uk with priority 20; could you please enable this for us or instruct me on how this is done?

    Thanks,
    Jurjen

  2. Hi there, you can set up MX records in your domain administration area, at Store > Domains. The full instructions are here:

    Be sure to follow the example of how the MX records must be formatted to work correctly.

    If you need any further help, just let us know!

  3. Hi there!

    First of all, I can't see the STORE that I need to go for the DOMAIN page and ADD EMAIL. Clearly this makes it impossible for me to make any changes!

    I can go through to the STORE when I click on the menu at the bottom (http://store.wordpress.com/), but then I can't find the DOMAIN page!

    Please assist
    Jurjen

  4. I managed to get in to the STORE (https://ladolceeaterdotcom.wordpress.com/wp-admin/paid-upgrades.php?page=domains) and go to DOMAINS, but I dont get the possibility to Add Email... please assist

    Thanks,

  5. You are looking in the wrong place. Go here and follow the guide to set up MX records http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/add-email/

  6. sorry to say but can't find the STORE and therefore the DOMAINS!!

  7. In order to set up email, you first have to map your domain to your site by purchasing the domain-mapping upgrade, which you can do under Store > Domains:

    https://ladolceeaterdotcom.wordpress.com/wp-admin/paid-upgrades.php?page=domains

    Here are instructions for how to map an existing domain:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    Once you've mapped your domain to your site, you should see all the domain-management options, and be able to set up your MX records by following the instructions above.

    Just let me know if you have any questions.

  8. Hi,

    Thanks for your helpful advice Kathryn. I have added my email again based on this info http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/add-email/ My provider is Go Daddy. I already added my email a few weeks ago but it does not seem to have activated.
