There are three possible solutions:
1. If your domain is pointed to Wix by IP- Please contact your domain hosting company and ask them to remove the MX records that point to Wix.
2. If you are connected via Name Servers- Please ask your domain hosting company for the MX records and insert them here .
3. If you have purchased personalized emails from Wix, please follow the instructions here.

    Last week, I directed my name server to WiX.com and now clients are sending me emails and I receive some but not all. What's the problem? I'm concerned.

    This is what I got when I tried to email one of my colleagues: 


    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification



    Delivery to the following recipient has been delayed:


    Message will be retried for 2 more day(s)

    Technical details of temporary failure:
    DNS Error: DNS server refused query

      I checked your Wix account and I saw you added an MX records to your email settings.

      Your domain is pointing to Wix name servers, this means you will need to connect your email by adding email records to your Wix account.

      Please contact you email host and ask them what additional email records should be added in order to be able to connect your professional email to Wix.

      In order to get your personalized email address up and running please follow the instructions here

      Hello Neirssa,


      Your domain missive.com.au is currently hosted at Domain Registration Services (DomainREG), according to this who.is report.


      We have no way to retrieve the MX records for you. Please contact your host and ask for the full domain record list.


      Thank you, please let us know in case you need our help again.

      All the best, Or

      If you purchased a Google Apps email through Wix, you can easy access and manage it from within your Wix account.


      To access your mailbox: Sign in to your Wix account > from the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Mailboxes > next to the relevant mailbox, click Manage.

      On the Mailbox Summary page, under Manage Settings, click Google Control Panel Settings > select an existing account or click Add account to add a new one.


      Note: If you already have a Google Apps account or a Gmail account, you may be asked, by default, to log in to that account. If this is not the correct account: click on Sign in with a different account > click Add Account > enter your full admin username- user@domain.com.
      You can find detailed instructions here.


      You can also sign into your mailbox directly through Gmail.com. Simply enter your entire Google Apps email address, including @mydomain.com, and your password.

      For more information on purchasing and setting up Google apps emails, please click here.

    I do not expect to see no-reply@parastorage.com when contact form is used on my website. I already purchased a personalized email account and had set the right reference on the form.

    Also under My Account>>Mail setting, I will like to see the purchased email address. I could only see a link, not the chosen name of the email e.g to show me@hivitronix.com when I click manage. That way, I can be rest assured that my email address is not via a proxy.

    Can these be changed? Do the user have these control over their email setting? At least, I thought it is personalized. Thank you.

      no-reply@parastorage.com is the email server being used when an email is send via the contact form. When you hit reply the email will be sent to the original recipient.

      You can now purchase personalized emails from Google Apps directly from Wix!

      Please note that this feature is not yet available for all users- If your domain is connected to Wix via Pointing then you will not be able to purchase a Mailbox for it. To learn how to connect your domain to Wix using the DNS method click here


      For more information please click here.


      Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have

      Many thanks, Barrios
