Which custom DNS to set on WordPress.com for Godaddy hosted/forwarded mail

I moved my blog to WordPress.com with a custom domain, which means WordPress now manages the DNS. However, my mail forwarding service is still coming from Godaddy. To make this work, I had to add custom DNS records to point to Godaddy’s mail servers, like so:

MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.
MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net.

Don’t forget the period at the end of each line.

  1. Thanks, this information absolutely worked so I (a non IT whip…) could get my emails working after I transferred my domain from GoDaddy to the nameservers at WordPress. The ‘help’ on both sites was not aimed at non IT people…
