    I have a company email address ... its a standard gmail account.

    How do I use this standard gmail account as the recipient of my contact form on my wix website.

    NONE of your prebaked answers covers this and I am not going to spend hours searching for it.

    Hi,

    I have a domain and email with 123-reg. My mailbox stopped working and they told me 
    its because I had changed the name servers to Wix. I was told to change it back to 123-reg and contact you to add the 123-reg MX records on my behalf.

    please help, not very good at this technical stuff

      Hello adamdavies73,

      Thank you for contacting Wix support.

      You have changed your nameservers to 123-reg and by doing so you have unlinked your site to Wix.

      When connecting a domain to your Wix site with our nameservers, the domain stays at your hosting company and connects to the Wix servers NS1.WIX.COM and NS2.WIX.COM.

      This method transfers control of your domain records to Wix. These records can be controlled via Domain Manager of your Wix account by you!

      This will also allow your mobile site to be automatically associated with your domain!

      To connect your domain to our name servers:

      Send your domain hosting company the following message:
      I have built a site on Wix.com. Please connect my domain to their name servers- NS1.WIX.COM (IP address 216.139.213.90) and NS2.WIX.COM (IP address 95.211.144.195).

      After sending your message, please allow up to 72 hours for changes to get updated (propagate).

      As for your MX records ,an MX record, or mail exchange record, is used to map a domain name to a list of message transfer agents for that domain. You can add or update MX records from the Domains page of your Wix account.

      To add or update MX records: Sign in to your Wix account > from the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains > under My Domains, next to the relevant domain, click Manage.

      At the bottom of Domain Summary, next to Email (MX Records):, click Add > select I have an email provider > from the drop down menu, choose Other > add or update the MX records > click Save.

      The MX records you need to add are:

      mx1.123-reg.co.uk:20
      mx0.123-reg.co.uk:10

      If you are having problems connecting with these MX records please mail your mail provider and ask them for the MX records and notify us so we can change it. At the moment we cannot change your records because you are not linked to our nameservers.

      Note: Use lowercase letters only when entering your MX records.

      For further information on adding or updating MX records, click here.

      Kind regards, Amit

    I am really struggling setting up my email address from a Crazy Domain site. I have received the detail below from Crazy Domains; can you see if I have entered this correctly in my area as I don't believe it is working.

    Further I do not know what mail server and user name I need to set up my Apple mailboxes. 

    I am so confused!

    Thank you for your email.

    Please do make or add the following DNS settings below at wix so that your email will work.

    Type: MX
    Host: lovethatshot.com.au.
    Target: mail.lovethatshot.com.au

    Type: A record
    Host: mail.lovethatshot.com.au
    Target: 163.47.72.161

    I have successfully connected my domain from the previous host to my Wix account.  Now this came with our old Google Apps email addresses:  like - webmaster@salemmennonite.us  and salemkidron@salemmennonite.us  Will these still remain intact or do I need to do something to keep it working?  (We have 5 of them)

    Good evening!  I purchased my domain through GoDaddy, which comes with 1 free email box.  I am hosting my site through Wix, and purchased a 2nd email address through the Google Mail App (through Wix).  When I set up the Wix-purcahsed email, it disabled my GoDaddy inbox.  I kinda/sorta understand why/how, but I am wondering ... Is it possible to have both emails active?  Can I forward the GoDaddy email to the Wix/Google Mail Center?  Thank you.

      Hi, 

      Thanks for contacting Wix Support.

      Please note that connecting a mailbox to two different MX records will produce issues.

      You should decide either mailbox you wish to use, or Wix Google Apps or your GoDaddy mail and make the relevant configuration accordingly.

      In case of further questions, please contact us again.

      That's what I suspected; thanks for confirming.

      If I buy a 2nd mailbox through Wix/Google and name it the same name as my free email through GoDaddy, will that solve the issue or will it cause additional problems?

      Follow-up question:  If I have 2 email addresses through Wix/Google, is there a way to have them dump into the same inbox?

      Thank you.

      Hi,

       

      Buying a second mailbox with the same name shouldn't create issues, apart from probably diverting email traffic away from your GoDaddy account to your newly purchased Google Apps account.

       

      In regards to your second question, you can set forwarding rules with Google Apps.

       

      Should you require any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again,

      - Daniel M, Wix team.
