I have sent multiple emails to from my work & gmail account. I have received email in the past but not for the past week+ now. They all are being rejected. Below is one of the rejection notices I received on my gmail account.

I have read all the FAQs and none seem to address this issue. I did a "Whois" search on my domain and it said it is registered and ok.
Any help is much appreciated.

Have you checked MX records? In cpanel in the Mail section there is an icon called MX Entry. There must be an entry pointing to your domain.

Hello Zeeshan.khan,

Sorry for the problem that you're having with mail. The issue is related to your A record request. Since you made the request to have the A record changed, the MX record by default is a CNAME which points wherever the main domain is pointing. This was done because there was no request made to keep email operational here at Web Hosting Hub, but that's just a misunderstanding that is easily fixed. I have since corrected this and pointed the to the HUB server so that it can receive email again. We do have an article that describes this: Email hosted with Web Hosting Hub, Website Hosted Elsewhere.

Apologies again for the confusion with your email. As I have indicated, the issue has been fixed. You may need to wait on propagation in order to see the change take effect.

Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Hello RWR_18M,

Sorry for the continue problem with the email. I followed up on the account and apparently, you had a support ticket in for it. The problem was related to DNS settings that needed to be re-pushed on the server. I created a test email account on your account and then emailed it from my own Gmail account to verify its operation. It should all be working now.

Apologies again for the problems. Please let us know if you continue to have any problems.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
