you want to have your email hosted by live mail ?

I followed the guides on the domains.live.com site as I found the Yola guide to be missing some steps.This is what I did:

Followed the Yola guide for setup email for your domain. This I found not to work or maybe it would would work after some time.

I then went and manually created the DNS record type: MX in the DNS settings for the live mail to Prove ownership of this domain. I also manually created the DNS record type: TXT for the live mail for Server trust

Hi ba.allsecure

I see that you had signed up with Yola via the Getting British Business Online (GBBO) program. Have you set up your email using Google Apps? If not, you may want to take a look at this tutorial: Setting up your email with Google Apps.

The tutorial related to setting up your email with Windows Live is for Yola Mail users.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you need more help.
