    I'm back groveling again...

    So, I changed my nameservers and parked my registered domain at x10hosting. However, that apparently also affected my email setup on my registered domain. I still want to be able to use my email setup there. How do I do this?

    My domain hosting company gave me the mx records for my domain and advised that those need to be changed on x10hosting. I entered the information where I thought they should go but that's not working.

    So this is what I did:
    1. I went into cpanel (x10hosting) and selected MxRecords
    2. I then selected my registered domain from the dropdown list (has my registered domain and my x10hosting subdomain)
    3. Next, I added the two mx entries provided by my domain host (priority 10, mx00..., priority 20, mx01...)

    Then tried to send a test mail to the email account, but it did not work.

    Can someone please help me? What am I doing wrong?

    You left out a step between 2 and 3

    What setting did you pick for
    "Email Routing"
    I could be wrong here, but I'd pick Remote Mail Exchanger.

    Personally, I'd forget using email on the domain host,
    and just set up an email account on the web-host server
    which auto does all that for lazy me. :)

    Thanks a lot, rmsx10ho! Yes, I'd have preferred setting up my email accounts here on x10hosting, but I have such limited space allocated (512mb) that I can't afford to bite into that small piece. :(

    And you're right, I didn't consciously select a choice for 'Email Routing'. I'll check that out.

    Thanks again. I so appreciate you!
