DNS Nameserver Change / Google Apps email not functioning

  • Author

    I recently went from a .com to self-hosted blog (Fatcow hosting). My domain (http://littlesproutsfarm.org) is registered through wordpress.com.

    The nameservers have been successfully redirected to ns1.fatcow.com and ns2.fatcow.com, and everything is fine in that department.

    However, I absentmindedly forgot about my Google Apps account that was set up when I originally registered my domain with wordpress.com. Now my emails are going off into neverland (getting the 550 550 5.1.1 recipient rejected (state 14) error message from google).

    What do I do?

    Even though I had no problem setting this up originally, this is now very confusing. I’m not sure what to change. The A records? MX records? Do I need to re-verify the account? Do I make these changes with wordpress.com (the registrar for my domain) or with my new host?


    The blog I need help with is littlesproutsfarm.org.
