MECA email NOT working after pointing to May 1st servers

Hi all,

After talking with Mallory Knodel I logged into Network Solutions at 2AM EST and pointed the DNS to May 1st servers of r ) Middle East Children's Alliance) . Since then ALL emails do not receive email. From some web searches, it looks like something is off with the MX records? I can be reached anytime at 917 217 6809

Hi Danny - i'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

I looked at your MX records - you are pointing most of them to google, but you left one record still pointing to (since you have no email addresses set up on daza, any mail sent to daza is going to bounce). i just removed that setting, so things should start to work. But it might take a few hours for the changes to propagate.

Thanks Jamie-

The MECA folks are still unable to send emails to one another. Any thoughts on why this might be happening?

Weird... maybe a gmail dns caching issue?

What's going on with this? the MX records for all appear to point to google's mailservers:

0 dkg@pip:~$ host has address mail is handled by 10 mail is handled by 30 mail is handled by 30 mail is handled by 20 mail is handled by 30 mail is handled by 30 mail is handled by 20
0 dkg@pip:~$ 

Mallory, can you follow up on this?

I'm assuming MECA's email is hosted at Google, so I'm closing this.
