cannot get verification code from google apps

  1. Hello,

    I am trying to set up my blog to use gmail for google apps, but I have failed to do so.

    Relevant info:

    _ I created a google apps account and got google to obtain the domain name from godaddy.
    _ I verified that domain within google apps before setting up my website
    _ I created a website, originally with the primary domain
    _ I later added to my list of domains and made it my primary domain
    _ godaddy was configured with the wordpress nameservers

    Now, when I try to edit my primary dns within wordpress ( and click the "verification code" link (
    I am redirected to (google apps dashboard)

    Is there any way I can obtain this verification code? I don't think I'll be able to get my google apps mail work again without it. Or is it possible to add the google MX records to my custom dns record via the wordpress dashboard.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. this doesn't apply to me because I had already verified the domain with google apps before creating my website, so there was nowhere to get the verification code (the verification code link on the wordpress dashboard links to my google apps control panel homepage).

    However, and this could be useful to others in a similar situation, simply adding the google MX records worked. In other words, if you have already verified your domain with google and you can still follow the instructions at but skip the first 15 steps. Just paste in the standard google mail records (see below) in the wordpress custom DNS record, without a verification code.

    Standard google mail records:

    TXT v=spf1 ~all
