Can't receive emails after website updated. MX records not propagating

Your DNS records, including the MX record, should match the DNS records at your host.

In your case, there isn’t a DNS record for ‘mail’, but there should be. It should be an “A” record with the same IP address as your domain. It should be DNS Only (:grey:). Then add an MX record for @ (your domain) that points to

Do you think I could just change my Bluehost domain settings to the cloudfare nameserver instead of using Bluehost? If that is the problem. Or is there a better way.

Dax and Harleigh? That would explain a lot. Your WHOIS info at your registrar is pointing to Nash and Roxy. You’d have to go to your registrar and change them. WHOIS info says your registrar is Fastdomain/Bluehost, so you’ll have to figure out where that’s set.

Ok. Thanks.
