Hello,
That is ok! Now that you have the MX record you can go into your advanced domain settings and add this for the email. Please take a look at this tutorial again: Setting up email, and go to Step 5 and continue from there.

Let us know if you have any trouble with this.

Not sure I follow.. I've already added the mx to my advanced domain settings.. It just seems like windows can't 'read' it..
My Domain is www.aileendavidi.com if you could check that everything looks like it should..?
Thanks!

Hi Aileen,

The MX Record has been added correctly to your domain's settings. When you click on the "Refresh" button in Windows Live, does an error message open?

Could you also let me know when you added the MX Record - it may need a little more time for the change to take effect.

Hey!
Nothing happens when I refresh, it just looks the same..
I added it about 30h ago or so..
How long is it supposed to take??

It definitely shouldn't take that long. I had another look at your domain's settings and I see that you had added a CNAME incorrectly. I've fixed that and I'm hoping Windows Live will change its mind. Can you keep trying for a few more hours and come back to us if it doesn't help? I can then try deleting and re-adding the MX Record.
