Can't get GoDaddy email to work with site

I host several domains with GoDaddy and the one I am currently working with has a free email assigned to it.  I wanted to use it with a site that has been up and running for 6 years.


However, I just can't make it work.  I have gone into the DNS settings an WP and added an MX record to reflect the correct mail servers at GoDaddy.  I have added a new CNAME setting to match GD.  Still, it comes back with an error "No MX Records found"


What am I doing wrong?  It has been about 18 hours since I changed it.

Hi, @Rockyfeller. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community!


If you're able to manage your DNS with WordPress, you should definitely be able to get your email working. If you provide the domain in question, that should help others in the community take a closer look at your situation and hopefully suggest how to move forward.
