I recently mapped an existing domain from Yahoo small business to WordPress. I want to keep the email that I have with yahoo which includes my domain name. I followed the directions on your site and requested MX records from Yahoo. This is the response that they sent me -
If you want to use Yahoo! for mails then you need to keep the nameservers and MX records to Yahoo! and get the IP address from WordPress for your website and then you can create Arecord for your domain name(bodybeyondfit.com and *.bodybeyondfit.com.) but after this you will not be able to access the mails via mail.bodybeyondfit.com. You have to use pop client, phone and via webmail.

But as a workaround i can suggest you to create the blog on Yahoo! and then import the content on Yahoo! using the steps mentioned below in the URL, by doing this you don't have to pay WordPress for hosting.

The blog I need help with is bodybeyondfit.com.
