I’m having problems with bounced mail automattic.com refusing to relay. This is intermittent.
Seems to be an issue with wordpress taking too much control of my domain.
I have the domain registered through 123-reg in the uk.
I have an @ CNAME wordpress.com record, but also have mx records pointing to the 123-reg mx servers and have a number of mail redirects set up on that. So I expected the website stuff to happen through wordpress but for me to retain control of the email side through my mx records.
Am I misunderstanding the nature of the wordpress domain management (or indeed the dns records?) And if so can I set up mail redirects through wordpress? (how?)
