Will my business email stay intact when I forward my domain?

  1. stephaniesherie

    I'm looking for help to make sure my yahoo business e-mail tranfers properly. I want to forward my already owned, domain name, to a word press business site. Before I jump in, I want to make sure this won't be a problem.

    If you’ve mapped a domain to your blog, you can use Custom DNS records to make your domain compatible with other services not hosted at, such as an email provider. does not provide an email service for domains. What's used is setting up email with Google Apps.

    On these support forums we post into threads only when we have answers to the questions being posed. Please respct that convention.

  4. @beecricket - domain mapping will crash an existing email service. Your advice was very bad - advising someone with a business to crash their email would put them out of touch and tends to produce panic

    @stephaniesherie - as noted above there are methods to deal with email and domain mapping - however you will need to get help from your existing email provider in your case it looks like yahoo mail - some DNS records will need to be changed and WordPress.COM does not know what records need to be changed to make your old email work - you should be able to use your old provider but caution is advised - I use my old host for my email here for my mapped domain but the switch required some head scratching and some help. Each system is a bit different and that is why WordPress.COM does not provide direct support - they have helped a bit in the past with formatting of the records once the information is gotten from the email provider .

    Thanks @auxclass. I had no clue this could be an issue! All is know is that in my yahoo business account, business E-mail and my Domain are treated separately.
