Been trying to sort ma in-laws Plusnet broadband which was activated today.
Her E-mail address can send E-mails but not receive any even if i click reply to the ones she sends.
The message bounces back and says 'DNS Error: Domain name not found'

I am with Plusnet, so have a look at your Account and under Servers you should see Incoming mail as and the Outgoing mail should be

The e mail user name is a bit strange as well, mine is listed as my surname, all lower case.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the reply.
The servers were correct,But Plusnet said there hadn't set up the E-mail from there end and it would take 20-30mins.
The outgoing mail did take about 30 mins but the incoming mail has finally started working after about 6 hrs. Lol.

Hi Tony,

It'll have taken that long for the DNS records to propagate.

Glad to hear it's all working though.

Best regards,

Bob Pullen
