Step-by-step tutorial on "How to receive email using custom email"

Hello guys, I would like to ask you if you can show me step-by-step tutorial "how to receive email using custom domain name".

I am trying to watch videos and read forums regarding this issue. I cannot figure it out.

I got my domain name in freenom and I already point it to profreehost and I already set-up my website. However, I cannot make a custom email using my domain name at freenom.

I wanted to receive email from the traffic that visits my website. My website is:

Thanks guys.


  • PFH/forum email not verified!
    PFH/Domain DNS verified!

    Your site can not be reached! Error "server IP address could not be found." at first look I would say freenom has not propagated yet. But dns prob seems okay,

    mx records has issues. In this case, you would need to get the site dns working correctly before email can be supported.

    As for a Step-by-step tutorial, one step at a time. Get the site working first. Then go on to the next step.

  • @Badbot, so how to solve these problems..

    Error Missing nameservers reported by parent FAIL: The following nameservers are listed at your nameservers as nameservers for your domain, but are not listed at the parent nameservers (see RFC2181 5.4.1). You need to make sure that these nameservers are working.If they are not working ok, you may have problems!

    Error Missing nameservers reported by your nameservers ERROR: One or more of the nameservers listed at the parent servers are not listed as NS records at your nameservers. The problem NS records are:
    This is listed as an ERROR because there are some cases where nasty problems can occur (if the TTLs vary from the NS records at the root servers and the NS records point to your own domain, for example).

  • Okay is reached! Don't worry about missing name servers.

    go into control panel, make sure all mx entries have priority of "0"!

    Then add this one > 0

    Wait till it propagates! Then you should be able to use webmail to send and receive. An PHPmailer scripts should work. But only with active email account. "[email protected]"

  • @ badbot, thanks for the response. I followed what you had said above. I am waiting it to propagates. I hope I made it correct.

    By the way, I also received this error below. What does it mean?

    Error DNS servers responded ERROR: One or more of your nameservers did not respond:
    The ones that did not respond are:

    And also, what do you mean by this one,►► "An PHPmailer scripts should work. But only with active email account. "[email protected]"

    Thanks in advance.
