    This is what godaddy.com sent me and I do not know how to do this:

    To make your email work again you will need to follow this first steps of instructions to point your mx records (email records) to us. To make sure your wordpress website is running properly you will need to follow the second set of instructions
    To Point Your Domain Name’s MX Records to Us

    Log in to your WordPress.com account.
    In your Dashboard, from the Store section, click Domains.
    Next to your domain, in the Email/DNS column, click Edit DNS.
    In the text form at the top of the page, enter your MX records in the following format:
    MX pref host.
    MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net.
    MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.
    Click Save DNS records.

    To make sure your wordpress website is running properly you will need to follow these second set of instructions

    NOTE: You cannot select your blog through WordPress.com until your nameservers resolve, which takes up to 72 hours.
    Selecting Your Domain Name Through WordPress.com
    After you have set your domain name’s nameservers to point to WordPress.com nameservers, you must select your domain through WordPress.com to complete the process.
    To Select Your Domain Name Through WordPress.com

    Log in to your WordPress.com account.
    Go to the Settings tab.
    Go to the Domains tab.
    In the Add a Domain field, enter your domain name.
    Click Add domain to blog.
    Click Put blog here for the domain name you want to direct your blog to.

    To Point Your Domain Name’s MX Records to Us

    Log in to your WordPress.com account.
    In your Dashboard, from the Store section, click Domains.
    Next to your domain, in the Email/DNS column, click Edit DNS.
    In the text form at the top of the page, enter your MX records in the following format:
    MX pref host.
    MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net.
    MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.
    Click Save DNS records.
    Blog url: http://yolivaldesdotcom.wordpress.com

    The blog I need help with is yolivaldesdotcom.wordpress.com.

    You first need to map the domain to your WordPress.com at Store > Domains on your blog’s dashboard.

    Please take a look at the following guide before going through the process.

    After you’ve completed the above steps, you can follow the steps below:

    1. Go to Store -> Domains in your Dashboard.

    2. Click “Edit DNS” button on the right of your domain name.

    3. In the text box, paste the code below:

    ——————————
    MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net.
    MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.
    ——————————

    4. Hit the save button.

    Please allow 4-8 hours for .COM and .NET domains and about 24-48 hours for all other domain extensions for these changes to complete.
