How Configuring DNS CNAME and MX records for Google Apps in cpanel server ?

Ans :

Google Apps is a suite of Google applications that brings together essential services to help your business. This is a hosted service that lets businesses, schools, and institutions use a variety of Google products — including Email, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Google Talk — on a unique domain (e.g., www.domain.com).

For instance, if you own the domain domain.com and you sign up for Google Apps services, everyone at your organization will get:

* A custom email address (user@domain.com)
* Tools for word processing
* Spreadsheets and presentations
* A shared calendaring system
* Tools for creating web pages and sites for your business
* Access to a flexible intranet system
* And much, much more!

Sign up your account by using the URL  ” https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/domain/new

DNS settings for Google Apps:

1) Set the following MX record for your domain .

domain.com.   IN      MX      10      aspmx.l.google.com.
domain.com.   IN      MX      20      alt1.aspmx.l.google.com.
domain.com.   IN      MX      5        alt2.aspmx.l.google.com.
domain.com.   IN      MX      10      alt3.aspmx.l.google.com.
domain.com.   IN      MX      10      aspmx2.googlemail.com.
domain.com.   IN      MX      10      aspmx3.googlemail.com.

2) Then set the CNAME record for your mail.domain.com

Replace  mail entry from

mail    IN    CNAME    domain.com

to

mail    IN    CNAME     ghs.google.com

If all the setting is correct and then it will take 1-2 hours to update at word wide . After that you can access your google mail by using the URL ” http://mail.domain.com ”

Note : Replace domain.com equal to your original domain name.
