    Dear Community
    I have registered my blog with a custom domain name using the wordpress custom facility. However I was surprised to see that the registration did not include also an “email forwarding service or the like for that newly created domain name.”

    In example: My domain name for my wordpress blog is dzx2.net How do I get from the domain name address to having also an email like (email redacted) (which could then be forwarded to my home email account.) I tkae it wordpress does not offer this. or does it? What would the logical steps to go?

    The blog I need help with is dzx2.net.

    WordPress.com does not provide an email client for mapped domains, but they do support using Google Aps:

    There are other ways to do email for a custom domain name but this is the only method that instructions are provided for.

    This is just a bried comment to let you know I’m in the Pacific Ocean on a small island off the west coast in Canada and your site is already redirecting to http://dzx2.net/ for me.
