Setup Google Apps with Afraid.org





jensbodal
So I wanted to use Google Apps for business to manage my email through a domain that I have, I use afraid.org to manage the DNS for free.

In afraid.org delete any existing mx and mail records (listed under subdomains).

Then create the following entries:

Code:

CNAME   ghs.google.com
MX   5:alt1.aspmx.l.google.com
MX   5:alt2.aspmx.l.google.com
MX   1:aspmx.l.google.com
MX   10:aspmx2.googlemail.com
MX   10:aspmx3.googlemail.com


The in your Google Apps account you need to verify the domain. Once you add the domain select "Other" from the provider list, then it will ask you to create a TXT file with something along the lines of: google-site-verification=_abcdefghijfkalsdkfjas

What you need to do now is go back to afraid.org and create a TXT entry and put that above verification in as the destination surrounded by quotes, for example: "google-site-verification=_abcdefghijfkalsdkfjas"

Once this is created go back to the Google Apps and then click verify domain and you should be good.

Once that is done go to the gmail setup and select create custom URL, and select mail.domain.com, and you should be good to go.
