i am google's bitch (maybe)

I am familiar with everything to do with a domain (the dot-com/net/org/whatever) except when it comes to CNAME and MX stuff. A while back I entertained the idea of using Google Apps which allows you to use Gmail itself as your primary domain mail, but I chickened out. Looked a bit too "involved", as they say.

Not to be outdone, Microsoft has Windows Custom Live Domains. Basically it's the same thing as Google Apps in a Microsoft flavor, which is either good or bad depending on your point of view. 🙂

After seeing that, I finally threw down the gauntlet and said Okay. I know just about everything else to do with domains. How hard can mail exchange records and CNAME's be?

I signed up for Google Apps. Modified the CNAME and that worked.

Yeah!

But then came the MX part. Seven, count 'em, seven MX records need to be input into your DNS record just to get the mail working.

Uh-oh.

Upon attempt to do this I got totally confused so I had to send a support ticket to my host's support center. Modifying the MX is possible but I've never done it before so I want to make sure I get it right the first time.

Because if not - none of my mail will work. That would be bad. 🙂

I'm waiting back on a response and hopefully will get this up and running. Then all my domain mail will be Gmail based if all goes well.

*** Update ***

I was able to successfully apply all the MX records and ta-da, I now have Gmail as my primary domain mail. Check it out (click the image for larger version).

This.

Kicks.

Ass.

Google, you rock. I love this.
