Solved Changing Mail Exchange (MX) records for my google email accounts

Post by Miskebam on October 8th 2011, 2:26 pm

I have an account through google mail that allows me to use my domain name to assign email addresses to all of my mods/admins up to 50, I have a little over 20, but they are useless because they can not receive the emails due to not being able to change the MX records, Is there a way to do this? The domain has been verified to prove ownership, but the second step is to set the MX record.

The following is copied from my google email management SET UP DELIVERY instructions. Would appreciate any help you can give me on this.

Changing Mail Exchange (MX) records

Mail Exchange (MX) records control how incoming email is routed for your domain. Before Google can host your email, you'll need to change these MX records to point to our servers.

If your domain already has email addresses, please be careful changing MX records. To avoid disruption in email service, be sure to create the same set of user accounts with the control panel before changing your MX records Learn more

1.Sign in to your domain hosting company's website using the username and password associated with your domain.

2.Navigate to an MX record maintenance page. MX records are special DNS (Domain Name Service) records, and are often located under sections titled "DNS Management," "Mail Server Configuration," or "Name Server Management." You may need to turn on advanced settings to allow editing of these MX records.

3.Delete any existing MX records before entering new MX records.

4.For each MX record, enter information according to the entries in the following table.

You may not be allowed to enter the priority values exactly as they appear in the table below; in that case, simply ensure that the server addresses are prioritized in the same order as they appear in the table. (i.e. The priority ranking [1, 3, 3, 5, 5, 5, 5] should work just as well as [1, 5, 5, 10, 10, 10, 10] so long as you keep the addresses in the right order.)

If you're asked to specify the type of each record you're adding, enter "MX".

MX records often require the specific format of DNS records, including a trailing dot (".") at the end of any full-qualified domain names (e.g. "server.example.com.")

Set any TTL values to the maximum allowed.

MX Server address Priority
ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 10
ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 20
ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. 20
ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. 30
ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. 30

5.Change the SPF record to fight SPAM (optional)

You may define the SPF record to authorize only certain IP addresses to send email for your domain. This will prevent spammers from sending unauthorized email under a forged address from your domain.

Thanks,

You won't be able to do this. There is no MX records here.

Thank you for the response. .
