forwarders email fails

i have created a forwarders email account about 3 days ago.

  • first account to gmail and the second to hotmail.
  • my domain is not cname.
  • i do have a email address (different from the forwarders email account name)

yet the forwarders email is fail to work.
please let me know.


@xoxo I too faced this…this is what i did…and it worked

First delete all email forwarders from “Manage Email”…

Go to “Set Web Address”…scroll down

Click on manage ---- set mx record

And set it to 000webhost mx.(

After this Now add…email forwarders again…This time it will work!!!


i have followed your pointing (nice…)
now waiting for results… its said to be updated in 24H…


Yes…its given that mx will be updated 24hr…bt it just takes couple of minutes.


already tried and i will try a few time today…


what is your domain name?


as well the cPanel let me add only 1 field of MX rather than 2 fields


@xoxo its still not updated…may be your domain dns…have google mx…remove that too… and add ( in your domain dns also.


i have maid the changes in domain records to the flowing,
image from my Domain


a DNS check…

i will check again to see if the record has been change…
(so fare is still point to google MX)

at the minute it will update - i will test the MX again. let you know


Yes its being propagated slowly.

i have tried to send an email - and didnt revise an error message - But didnt revise the email as well!

i have noticed that in on cPanel >> email>> Modify
MX Record -->>the value:

several times!!!

after a while it reset itself


ok. after it reset itself last time… i tried again… and from some reason it stay on

but still the email dont arrived neither any error from hotmail.
