    I recently set up an email for my blog at Network Solutions (where I purchased my domain). For some reason, when I go to http://mail.almanacofstyle.com, it sends me straight to my blog page instead of my mailbox page. I contacted them, and they said I need to contact whomever is hosting my server which I believe would be you. Any way to resolve this?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is almanacofstyle.com.

    Hi there,

    Hi there,

    I just talked to Network Solutions again. They said the issue is I currently have it set so that everything points to my WordPress page, but my host server (WordPress) would need to change the records so that my email points to my Network Solutions page. They sent me the records below and said someone on your end should know what to do with it…let me know if this makes any sense and if it’s possible. Thanks!

    Mx Record
    ALMANACOFSTYLE.COM. 10
    INBOUND.ALMANACOFSTYLE.COM.NETSOLMAIL.NET.

    CNAME Record
    MAIL.ALMANACOFSTYLE.COM.
    MAIL.ALMANACOFSTYLE.COM.NETSOLMAIL.NET.

    CNAME Record
    SMTP.ALMANACOFSTYLE.COM.
    SMTP.ALMANACOFSTYLE.COM.NETSOLMAIL.NET.

    Hello,

    Just following up on this, as I’m hoping to get my email set up as soon as possible.

    Please advise. Thank you!

    WordPress.com does not have mail servers at all. There is ONLY this workaround: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/add-email/

    I will flag this for staff attention.

    Please see the guide at http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/add-email/

    We have a handy tool for setting up email through Network Solutions.

    Thanks, I didn’t see the option for Network Solutions earlier.

    However, I can’t seem to find the Store –> Domains page to get to “Add Email”. I’m logged into WordPress right now – should I be logged in? The only place I see “Store” is when I click on Settings and then see “Store” in the footer at the very bottom of the page under “On WordPress.com”. Is that where I should be clicking?

    Thanks!

    You’ll need to be in your blog’s Dashboard: https://almanacofstyle.wordpress.com/wp-admin/
