Pending setup validating mx record godaddy forwarding

30 Dec

If you don't want to delete the address, you can set up forwarding copies of incoming emails, to another inbox.

) pointing at [email protected] but it keeps stucking at "validating mx records" i contacted both hosts and said that i need to add my web server providers mx records to my domain... thing is that i searched but didnt find a solution on this...

Now most people will typically point the NS to Rackspace, then they will manage the DNS on rackspace and have the email hosted on rackspace and then use fowarders in that email system to whatever address you want.

If this is your setup, then you will need to set up MX records on rackspace to point to rackspace mail servers, or point them back to godaddy to use their email servers.

For example, MX0 is assigned the value 'mail.coolexample.com'.

No email gets stored at the forwarding address that you set up; all email gets immediately directed to the destination email address.

Warning: If you want to use an email address that you've already set up with email as your forwarding account, you'll need to delete that address, and then follow these instructions.

Until then, you'll continue to receive messages at your old email provider.

If you see the MX records setup validation in progress message in the Admin console for more than a few hours, make sure you entered the MX address records and priorities correctly in the DNS records stored with your host.
