    Hi there – I see you’ve added the mapping, but eliflap.it isn’t yet pointing to your blog. You’ll need to update the name servers with your registrar, as described here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/#instructions-for-mapping-an-existing-domain

    If you host email with your domain registrar, please ask them for the exact MX and any other DNS records you’ll need to enter on our end, so that your mail still works when your name servers are pointed here.

    Correct, the mail will stop working when you point your name servers here, but it is possible to fix this by adding some additional DNS records on our end. You’ll need to ask your registrar for the exact MX and any other DNS records you’ll need to enter on our end, so that your mail still works when your name servers are pointed here to WordPress.com.

    Then, we can help you format and enter the records that they give you.

    Hi there – I believe they are telling you that they need our DNS so they can point your domain here to us. That’s these name servers:

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    However, once you’ve done that, your email hosted with them won’t work anymore. So, they need to give us the DNS records for their email hosting, so we can make sure your email still goes through now that your domain is pointing here. For example, this is what the DNS records for email hosted with GoDaddy Europe look like:

    MX 0 smtp.europe.secureserver.net.
    MX 10 mailstore1.europe.secureserver.net.
    CNAME email email.secureserver.net.
    CNAME mail pop.secureserver.net.

    They’ll need to provide you with some DNS records similar to that. I know this is confusing – I hope this helps to clarify!

    Withy registrar , Aruba.it , seems I cannot have both.

    I must use their servers for pointing and mails.

    If I choose WordPress servers , I am not able to use their mails , with @eliflap.it as address …

    Hi there – if your registrar cannot provide you with the DNS necessary to use their email while your name servers are pointed here, another option is to host your email with another provider, such as Zoho Mail:

    wonderful … after some hours, including a nice dinner of course i’m italian, i finished zoho setting on web and my mac, iphone …

    http://accismus.com/ you gave me a wonderful tip !

    i solved another issue with my register. now i bypassed vodafone on my iphone and finally i can send mail @eliflap.it from the iphone instead a default outgoing server @vodafone.it as i tried to change in the last 2 years …

    i already done a A+ survey … nice job.
    another woman teached me something, after my daughter obviously …
    many thanks, Elizabeth.
    ciao

    Hi there – Excellent! I’m glad you’re all set with Zoho. :)

    http://eliflap.it/ still doesn’t point to your blog for me; let me know if you need further help with that.

    i was out for work … now i changed again servers …

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM NS2.WORDPRESS.COM NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    now redirected…

    i am a bit scared that aruba.it now changes my email settings …

    control panel of site, changing servers now shows me only record name servers …

    other controls like MX records , CNAME ant others settings disappeared …

    however, now just looking how it works … seems eliflap.it now is redirected well on eliflap.wordpress.com …

    Hi there – wonderful! I’ve added the MX records for your Zoho Mail to your DNS here. But you might need to go through this process to get the unique code described:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/add-email/add-email-through-zoho-mail/

    Can you give that a try and let me know if you get stuck at any point?

    from yesterday evening all is gone well …

    the “strange” setting control panel of my aruba domain is the cause of my previous fails …

    as i did, i left a positive feedback for your help.

    Zoho is a great service. and very fast too , now mails arriving 20 of them in 1 seconds , on mobile devices too …

    so, a very happy ending !

    ciao
