Got a question about hosting a website at GoDaddy and using Google Apps to handle mail for a single domain.
1) I use registrar's name servers so that I can change DNS settings.
2) I changed the A record to point to the IP address where I want to host my website and change www CNAME to
3) I changed MX records to what Google's instructions said.
The website shows up fine, but something funny is going on with e-mail. For some reason Mac mail cannot send to
firstname.lastname@example.org. I get:
Verify that you have addressed this message correctly. Check your SMTP server settings in Mail preferences and verify any advanced settings with your system administrator.
Select a different outgoing mail server from the list below or click Try Later to leave the message in your Outbox until it can be sent.
When I try to send e-mail to other addresses it works fine, so I suspect something is wrong with the A record pointing one place and MX records pointing to Google.
Any ideas why this is happening?
