Need help? Check out our Support site, then controlling MX records

  1. I have a registered domain name w/ GoDaddy and full hosted platform there. I'm still pointing my name server records to,, etc until I get my site fully migrated over. However, I have a mail server at work I want to pick up mail for my site, and I have configured the MX record and A record entry in my DNS zone file to point to my public IP.

    However, I cannot get inbound mail to work because WordPress is still picking up the mail record somehow for this domain. I do an nslookup, set the query type to MX, and I get this:

    Non-authoritative answer: canonical name =

    Authoritative answers can be found from:
    origin =
    mail addr =

    So how to get the MX record actually pointed to my public IP and off of WordPress controls.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. host -t mx<br /> has no MX record<br />

    You haven't correctly configured your MX record.
