DETAILS:

1.) Yesterday I purchased my domain name on godaddy for a new word press blog that I want to set up.

2.) So I then created a Google Apps Account, to use for email and set it up with godaddy. Verified everything and got email working.

3.) Upon doing research for self-hosting, I came across a few recommendations to use freehostia and decided to because well hey it's free.

4.) I then changed the name servers as instructed then my email stopped working. After reading the forums I tried several different options, added the CNAME & MX Records:

CNAME

imap ghs.google.com
mail ghs.google.com
calendar ghs.google.com
docs ghs.google.com



MX Records

10 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
20 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
30 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
40 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM
50 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM

See Screen Shot: Image


PROBLEM:

Now when I try to send an email to my freehostia hosted domain I get the following error:

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

XXXXXX (at) XXXXXXX.com

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 relay not permitted (state 14).

I am however able to send emails from it

See Screen Shot: Image


NEED:
What am I doing wrong? Are there any or could someone give me step by step instructions for setting up Google Apps with freehostia hosted domain?

I would greatly appreciate any assistance anyone could offer.

All the best,
Shelly

Hello Shelly,

We do not support CNAME records. But you shouldn't have a problem to change the domain name MX record. It's not a problem to host here your domain name and use Google mail service at the same time.

Im not sure that I follow.

So how or what do I do to the dns to set it correctly? Can you give me step by step instructions on how to get this to work. What do I remove or add so that my Google Apps work correctly?

Thank you in advance for your response.

It will be better to open a trouble ticket regarding this problem.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
