Email DNS Problems for working nonprofit, please respond fast

    I need DNS help fast, please, so my nonprofit can get email running asap.

    I'm doing a domain mapping. I've input the nameservers pointing to wordpress.com. Now I need to get you the DNS for the email service.

    There is a problem with the formatting of the DNS I received from the host site (Dreamhost.com). Here is what I input to your form and tried to validate:

    A 75.119.216.179
    MX 10 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    MX 20 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    MX 20 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    MX 30 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
    MX 30 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
    MX 30 ASPMX4.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
    MX 30 ASPMX5.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
    NS ns1.dreamhost.com.
    NS ns2.dreamhost.com.
    NS ns3.dreamhost.com.
    ftp A 75.119.216.179
    mail CNAME ghs.googlehosted.com.
    ssh A 75.119.216.179
    www A 75.119.216.179

    Your system did not like the NS records, so I deleted those. It also did not like the CNAME and the A record. I believe I need at least one A record. I cannot decipher your suggested format.

    Please help so we can have email on Thurs morning. I did this on Wed night so it would be done in the morning. Thanks. Kaye

    The blog I need help with is psabq.org.

  2. You can follow these steps on how to add e-mail through Google Apps: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/add-email/add-email-through-google-apps/

    I've already set the appropriate MX records for you at https://projectshareabq.wordpress.com/wp-admin/paid-upgrades.php?page=domains&action=dnsedit&domain=psabq.org

    Thanks, I've just submitted those records. I'm assuming that will get the gmail operating soon. If there is more I need to do, please let me know. Thanks.

  4. That should be enough. Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.
