  20. FYI:
    in CPANEL, it'll need 24 hours after you finished setup MX (Step 4) until you can click Refresh Button (Step 10-11) then your service will active.

    note: Step 9 are not mandatory for activation.

  22. I have followed this guide and got my email ID. But the problem is, I am not able to get mails from my WordPress blog (Contact page) when all emails are coming at the same email ID that has been sent from gmail.com or outlook.com or anywhere else. Can you please tell me what the problem is?

  23. Great instructions but don't forget to delete the smtp.secureserver.net line in the MX field - this step was not mentioned.

  24. At step 15 you have probably written by mistake "CNAME points to Google server"

  32. This may be useful, as an update to the above article, Outlook recently announced that they will no longer be supporting the free custom domain email feature. As an alternative, you can read my step by step guide to creating your own email domain for personal, business, or corporate use at OwnEmailDomain dot net. Cheers.

  33. Hi,

    What if someone changes their hosting provider. For an example, I switch from Hostgator to another hosting service. Will the mails remain in outlook.com? I heard that mails are lost if you change your hosting.
