Email is now online
My email address is now up and running. It forwards it to an email account not with my domain registrar (Go Daddy). I was having trouble with it as the DNS records are not controlled by Go Daddy, they’re with WordPress who handle the blog. I found the MX records had to be changed on WordPress in order for the email received at @robcrocombe.com to be directed to my new forwarding address.
To find the correct MX records with Go daddy, go to your account and launch the domains manager. Click on your domain name and click manage email account under ‘Related Products’. Here you can click on ‘server addresses’ and your current and required MX records will be displayed. It will also tell you if they are correct. You can then change the records at WordPress in Settings > Domains > Edit DNS.
Hope this helps anyone who has similar issues.
