Add Email »Add Email through GoDaddy email hosting

If you already had email for your domain through GoDaddy before mapping your domain at WordPress.com, you can connect that email hosting back to your account here by following the steps below.

Back in WordPress.com, Go to My Domains and click on Edit for the relevant domain, and then click on Edit DNSScreenshot of the My Domains page showing different domain options

Note that GoDaddy users in Europe and Asia may need to use different CNAME and MX records (see bottom of page).

Enter each of the following records and click Add:

MX smtp.secureserver.net 0

MX mailstore1.secureserver.net 10
godaddy_email_us_mx2
CNAME email email.secureserver.net
godaddy_email_us_cname1
 CNAME mail pop.secureserver.net
godaddy_email_us_cname2

  1. Click the Save Changes button.

Your email will begin working in a few hours.
