I have a registered domain name w/ GoDaddy and full hosted platform there. I’m still pointing my name server records to NS1.wordpress.com, NS2.wordpress.com, 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:
mail.berderp.com canonical name = berderp.com.
Authoritative answers can be found from:
origin = ns1.wordpress.com
mail addr = hostmaster.wordpress.com
So how to get the MX record actually pointed to my public IP and off of WordPress controls.
