DNS manager to old provider

    Hello, last weekend I bought an upgrade to use my own domain (thelaiatelegraph.org) with WP. Work fine!!!.

    After that I followed step by step the instructions to point my 8 mails addresses to my old provider (Arsys.com). Arsys send me the three parameters to edit in WP Domains Manager (A mail xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, A smtp xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, MX 10 thelaiatelegraph.org. More than 72 hours after, my mail doesn’t receive (but its possible to send!!). I know I can use Google Apps, but I prefer, if this is possible (and I think so) continue to use the mail service by my old provider.

    Before writing this post I send a mail to the support team, but then I realise that I can’s receive mails …Opps!

    Kindly, Alex

    The blog I need help with is thelaiatelegraph.org.



    This is what my notes show I used while keeping my old email provider. (Well OK I changed the numbers to generic)

    A mail
    MX 10 mail.my-domain.com.

    Hope this helps – looks like no full stop after the A mail but there is one after the .com. (period)

    Good luck.

    I will also mark this for the staff in case they have more words of help – there was a bit of a problem when I moved in the WordPress.COM uses a bit different syntax than my host was used to (same info but just looked a bit different)



    PS – this is where we normally refer you to the staff – but with no email I have flagged it. The first site I moved was a test site so I could work out the problems without taking my email down – works great now.


    Thanks auxclass. The problem is now fixed. There was a little mistake with MX. Finally all work fine.

    Regards, Alex



    You be welcome & good luck
