I have recently bought a domain name through my web hosts and would like to link it to a Posterous account.

Following the instructions on the Posterous website I have entered my domain details in but all this seems to do is forward myName.posterous.com to myURL.com

Surely I need to set the nameserver details on my domain to point to the Posterous servers but I can't see anything on their site about it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
