Crazy Domain Email

  1. Hello. I am beside myself and crazy domain support has helped all they seem to. Social Media i can do...this is out of my forte. I am trying to direct my crazy domain email address to wordpress. I have gotten so far by removing unwanted items from the domain, (as per crazy domains instructions) and now they want me to insert a A record to an IP addrees (i get this but cant find the format to do it in)

    i currently have this in my domain (which is accepted)
    MX 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    MX 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    MX 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    MX 10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
    MX 10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
    MX 0 MAIL.POPFIZZLE.COM.AU.
    TXT google-site-verification=-GIgsgcT32z5hTG8qCPIKpmdFog9YEixESsM95GSGGs
    TXT v=spf1 include:aspmx.googlemail.com ~all

    Crazy domains said i need to add this (their wording)
    Create an A record (for mail.popfizzle.com.au)and point it to 27.124.116.193
    Create an A record (for webmail.popfizzle.com.au)and point it to 27.124.116.193

    Please can someone show me in what coding/format i need to do it. I have used the DNS add email help page before anyone links me back there. Also once this is done i should be good to roll?

    TIA!

    The blog I need help with is popfizzle.com.au.

  2. We actually have automated that to make it easier for you! Instead of manually entering all of those records, you can use these instructions instead:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/add-email/#google-apps

  3. Thanks. I have tried it that way and was unsuccessful, so I manually added. I was told for this to not use google apps selection.

    Like I mentioned before I only need to know how to add the A record and I should be done as the rest has been accepted.

  4. That's strange. I think the Google Apps selection should work, and if it doesn't it would be good to test it to find out why.

    If you're in a rush though, adding the records manually is also pretty easy once you know the format to use. For A records, the format is:

    A <subdomain> <IP>

    So yours would be:

    A mail 27.124.116.193
    A webmail 27.124.116.193

    Add those to the Store → Domains → Edit DNS page for the domain you're setting up.

  5. Thanks you.

    I sorted this out.

    I had tried the above that you did with the A record befor ei saw your post and it worked!

    thanks for you help :)
