If you see this message while creating a free email account:
It means that your domain is not pointing to Hostinger at the moment. What can you do with this?
If you want to only use mail services with Hostinger and the domain name to be pointed elsewhere:
- Open the service where your domain is pointed to.
- Open DNS zone editor (it may have a different name based on the service) and change the following records:
Record type: TXT
Value: the TXT record that is displayed in the grey field of the warning message
TTL: leave the default
To successfully send and receive emails, you need to add Hostinger MX records as well.
NOTE: When you update your domain's DNS zone, you will need to wait up to 24 hours until changes are fully propagated 😊
