Problem with adding email to domain (no MX record on googleapps)

  1. I'm having a bit of a problem setting up my email with my new domain (www.mpacprint.com) and hope someone will be able to assist.

    I followed through all the instructions to setting up the email based on the instructions from the support page. In the Domain>Email setup page, I selected Google apps as my email service provider (which I've just signed up for), Confirmed Google services account & am already logged in.
    However I hit a roadblock when I clicked 'Start' under Authorize Connection.

    It seems that my [email redacted] is not receiving mails, which is the verification email that I should be getting when I hit 'Start' under Authorize Connection. I presumed it was a Google apps problem & had the problem troubleshoot.
    The results shown was the following:-

    <openquote>
    mpacprint.com

    There were some critical problems detected with this domain. Mail-flow is probably affected. Please refer to the corresponding help articles to fix these.

    Domain MUST have at least one mail server.
    There SHOULD be at least one MX record.
    Relayhost configuration detected.
    There SHOULD be a valid SPF record.
    <closequote>

    Based on the above, it seems likely that the issue is with the domain host(wordpress), rather than google apps, as there isn't any MX record when I looked it up in my google apps account. This, if I understand correctly, is what's affecting the email server. At this point, like to note that I searched for mpacprint.com in whois, and the results show that the domain is available.

    Would appreciate if someone could help me on this
    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is mpacprint.com.

  2. Weird there seems to be a type. Third para should read:

    It seems that my email @ mpacprint.com is not receiving mails, which is the verification email that I should be getting when I hit 'Start' under Authorize Connection. I presumed it was a Google apps problem & had the problem troubleshoot.

  3. Oops, again. Typo, I meant.

  4. issue resolved.
    it seems that the wordpress 'add email' walkthrough is missing an important step

    for future reference, the solution is on this page
