I looked at the support description of adding google mail. I have my own domain name atravelerslibrary.com I have the "Get Google MX on the Domain section of Settings, but when I click on it I get a blank page, instead of a place to fill in the code to prove my identity to Google.
The Support section in question is: http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/custom-email/
BTW, I cleared the cache and enabled cookies, just in case that was a problem.
Anybody out there who has made this work?
