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.yourdomain.com).

For example , 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!

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

Once everything is setup correctly it will take around 2-24 hours to propagate the DNS changes and after that you should be able to access your Emails using the link  :

http://mail.yourdomain.com

Note : Do replace your actual domain with yourdomain.com
