Hi, i want to use Google to read my mails. There it says, i have to change my MX records and create a CNAME "mail.domain.com". I made these changes on my registrars website. But it still waits for confirmation.
I wanted to ask that do i need to change these records via Frihost. If i have to change on Frihost, how can i do that?
I tried on DirectAdmin, but it said "You haven't got permission", what must i do.
My registrar is Yahoo. Waiting for advices. Thanks to you all.
my contact email is from Gmail, and that "Waiting for confirmation" thing is MX record control thing. So it can not pass that, because i can not change MX records from Frihost.
i have changed the mx records on Yahoo, and added a CNAME.
And I can access my mails from frihost webmail service. but i want to manage my mails on google.
how can i do that? is there anyway to change mx records from frihost DirectAdmin? Who gives permission?
You need following,
1. Control over your DNS records (CNAME, MX Records).
2. An account registered with Google (which you already have).
Google will ask you to add a cname randomnumber.yourdomain.com -> google.com to your domain, this allows them to confirm that you own the domain and you are authorized to make changes to it.
Next you have to wait till the DNS entry is propagated, in my case it took about 5 hours, however in most cases it should be less than that, once google DNS servers can see this number in your domain records, they will switch on mail receiving for your domain automatically. Obviously you should already add google MX records to your domain i-e
MX yourdomain -> ASPMX[xx].L.GOOGLE.COM
After this step, you just need to wait till everyone on internet can see these records, they will start sending mail to google MX servers which will then forward the mail to your mailbox at google. This entire process can take upto a day to complete. However if you can not get mails after that then either you have done something wrong with DNS or something else is broken.
Hope this helps.
i think, i could not explained what i really need.
I did everything for MX records which Google needs, on my registrar. And using frihost for hosting. so i used Frihost NS's.
But it did not worked because I am using frihost and it does not allow me to change the DNS records. how can i change them on frihost?
Or is that not allowed on that server?
Thanx again for your posts.
