CNAME Help: mail.appticity.com maps directly back to www.appticity.com

  1. i have a new wordpress site located at http://www.appticity.com and i am also using googleapps. Currently, http://mail.appticity.com/ is mapped directly back to ttp://www.appticity.com and i need it mapped to open my google web mail. I have the same problem the other google apps i use. My understanding is that i need to add a custom cname but have not been able to figure out how to do this / what the format is for changing the cname. Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is appticity.com.

  2. Hi there,

    Take a look at this guide:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/custom-dns/

    It should help clear things up. If not, what CNAME are you trying to add?

  3. Hewsut ... yes, i did check that. My issue is specific to http://mail.appticity.com/. Currently this is mapped to http://www.appticity.com not sure how but it happened when i moved my domain from godaddy to wordpress.

    It should be mapped to my gmail account so i can get my web mail and i cant figure out what i need to do.

    Thx for your assistance.

  4. First you need to set up MX records and POP hosts on the custom DNS editor (the one Hew linked).

    MX record / CNAME information for GoDaddy is listed here.
    http://help.godaddy.com/article/340

    In the DNS editor, enter:

    MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net.
    MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.
    CNAME mail appticity.com.
    CNAME pop appticity.com.
    CNAME smtp appticity.com.

    Note: MX records (first 2 lines) may not be the same as above for your account, as the documentation states "Enter your MX record information as indicated in your Email Control Center."
    You have a .COM domain, so please allow up to 8 hours for the change to complete.

    Here's how to set up POP access for another account on Gmail.
