mx – I want to use email service of Zoho Mail with hosting server Hostinger for my custom domain. How do I do it?

For a small project of mine, for which really don’t want to invest any cent, I want to host email services with my custom domain (let’s assume l already own.

The hosting service l’m using (please don’t judge) is Hostinger and the free mail service l want to avail is Zoho Mail.

I have registered with Zoho Mail, proven that I own the custom domain “ and have even created a user email account on the same domain

So the thing is, I can send emails from Zoho Mail to other email accounts, but can’t receive any. Everywhere I read, they tell me to configure the MX records in the cPanel. I’ve tried that but it ain’t working.

What should do? Thanks!
