CNAME and MX
I am having problems with the custom DNS records. I received the information from register.com but I don’t know how to format it:
In C Name: mail.make-it-fabulous.com points to: webmail01.register.com
In MX: make-it-fabulous.com Priority: High mx01.register.com; Medium mx03.register.com
I looked at the responses given on similar topics but I didn’t find a response that corresponds exactly to my situation.
Can you help?
The blog I need help with is make-it-fabulous.com.
Hi. The following support documents explains just how to format your DNS records so that WordPress.com understands them:
Regrettably, your provider did not provide you (no pun intended) with the priority numbers, so we’ll have to improvise…
CNAME MAIL WEBMAIL01.REGISTER.COM. MX 1 MX01.REGISTER.COM. MX 5 MX03.REGISTER.COM.
Please advise if it works.
Thank you for your response airodyssey!
When I contacted my provider again on Friday night, I was told to use 10 for the priority.
Here is what I entered:
MX 10 MX01.REGISTER.COM
MX 10 MX03.REGISTER.COM
CNAME MAIL.MAKE-IT-FABULOUS.COM WEBMAIL01.REGISTER.COM
I didn’t get any error message and the information was saved but nothing has happened since. The email is still not working:-(
Did you put the full stop character ( . period) at the end of the lines?
Also, your CNAME record is wrong. Please follow the example I gave you, changing only the priority numbers.
Okay I will try again using your example and let you know how it goes.
@auxclass: I did put the full stop character. I will try again and use airodyssey’s example and I will keep you posted.
It worked!!!! Thank you so much for your help:-)
