The Posterous Problem

Update: part of this is cut off. Under the Add IP address (A Record) below I have the address on the left and the posterous IP address on the right and it shows that when I log into

I registered a domain name with for my posterous and followed the instructions but am still getting this error:

Oops. We ran into 1 problem!

Try to fix these issues and try again.

  • Virtual host is not currently pointing to the right place. We found:

    Please set your DNS servers to the correct address (A record to 'XX.XXX.XXX.XX') and try again.

    I have it set correctly on, I think:

    Hello, it can take an hour for your a record to be deleted and your new one to work. It depends on the TTL set by After your new A record has been added then you go to manage in Posterous to add your new url. I hope this helps.

    I’m be on IM as WayneSutton12 for a few if you want to chat.

    Garry, thanks so mu I guess I need to know, which IP address goes in which box to get this right. The 208 address is from I had the 208 pointing to the Posterous IP address listed in the instructions on Posterous. I have zero technical skills (maybe that’s the problem). So the question is does your IP go on the right and their’s on the left, vice versa or did I miss a step?
