Hi, i’m having the same problem with bonjour@atelierlilicolibri.fr.
i don’t know why i can’t receive notifications and if it is the “hard bounce” problem what am i doing wrong ?

Thanks

Hi Luke, could you check nico@onecastaway.de for me please, I think I’m having the same problem and it maybe have been caused while waiting for DNS to propagate on that domain.

hi, I had not made the connection but it seems that it is the same thing. i’ve just changed my DNS config. Could somebody do something for me/us ?

Hi, @zb2oby. I checked for that email address on the bounce list but it wasn’t there.

I believe you are not receiving emails for that email address because you have no email service configured for your domain:

$ dig atelierlilicolibri.fr MX

There are zero MX records for this domain and I’m not aware of any way for email to be successfully delivered without MX records.

I think the section of this support guide labeled “I did not copy my records before switching name servers and my email (or other service) stopped working. How do I fix this?” may have the solution for your issue.

If there are any questions about either solution in the support guide above, @zb2oby, please let us know and we will be happy to answer.

For the email address you listed, @darkmekker, it was on the bounce list and I have removed it now. Your email notifications should work now and if not, please reply here anytime.

Hi, Thanks for reply. I don’t understand. It is a mailbox provided by IONOS. i have another site in netlify with the same form and globally the same configuration and i can receive notifications for it in the associated mailbox.
Moreover, i’ve made a test a month ago for bonjour@atelierlilicolibri.fr and i received notification in this mailbox. so i don’t understand why it does not works anymore.

Hi, @zb2oby. Here are the facts:

  1. MX records are required for email delivery to work.
  2. Your domain has no MX records currently, as proven by the DNS lookup below:
$ dig atelierlilicolibri.fr MX

; <<>> DiG 9.10.6 <<>> atelierlilicolibri.fr MX
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 37614

I queried for the MX records above and the SOA record is returned instead. (DNS servers return SOA records when the requested record is missing.) This proves you have no MX records for your domain and this is why your email for that domain isn’t working.

To summarize, your email service simply isn’t configured - at all. I sent you a link to the two different ways to fix this, the link below:

https://answers.netlify.com/t/support-guide-how-do-i-migrate-a-domain-to-netlify-dns-with-zero-downtime/3397#heading–email-stopped-working

If there are questions about either of those two solutions, please let us know.

Ok. it works now. in fact my other site was pointing on a .fr and form on a .com. That is why it was working for it without any MX configuration but no for my new one.
this one have both mail and site pointing on the .fr domain and it need an MX record on the netlify side. It was not very clear at the begining for me but now, thanks to you, it is ok !
