I have a domain -
myapp.com - hosted by Dream Host. Up until recently I had some php as a signup form at that domain. I also had a one-click install of Word Press at
blog.myapp.com, and could log into GMail through Google Apps from Dream Host at
A few days ago I migrated my Rails app over to
myapp.com using Heroku's Zerigo add-on. Zerigo worked magic migrating my app over to
blog.myapp.com didn't work, and neither did
mail.myapp.com. (I could access mail but I had to go
mail.google.com/a/myapp.com. Plus I was having people tell me their emails to me were bouncing back with errors.)
I contacted Dream Host who helped with getting my blog back - they had me use custom DNS by setting the A record with value
www.blog.myapp.com. I did this in Zerigo. The blog was back.
However, I still couldn't access my mail through
mail.myapp.com. So I went back to Dream Host and they told me to:
- Have MX records set for
mx2.sub4.homie.mail.dreamhost.com.Priority of 0 (zero) for both.
- Set an A record for
188.8.131.52and another for
I did all of the above in Zerigo as well and nothing worked. Worse yet, I think my email stopped working. So I removed the MX records for dreamhost, as well as the A records pointing to
So where things currently stand, I have an app that works, a blog that works, but email that I still can't access at
mail.myapp.com. And that freaks me out. How can I fix this?
I should note that I'm trying to send mail from my app in SendGrid and GMail (only locally), but have my email accounts and everything else with Google Apps.
I've pasted in all of my Zerigo DNS info below:
