So now I have a problem. I recently bought an email hosting package with my domain at mydomain... but then i found out that google apps gives free emails. so i cancelled the email package (though it takes like 5 days to fully cancel), and i deleted all trace of emails from my cpanel. then i went to google and set up apps and put in all the MX records to how they said it. however, it's been over 24 hours now, and my MX record lookup still shows:
mail.website.org. [Preference = 25] instead of ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
instead of the Google apps MX's. is it just a question of time, should i just wait some more, or am i missing some key step?
You will have to provide some more details about the setup. Like where are the name servers pointing to as asked above. Also, in the server where the domain is hosted, it will have to be removed from /etc/localdomains and put in /etc/remotedomains
I added the MX records to "DNS management" where I got my domain.. at mydomain.com. My hosting is under Zymic, and I can't find DNS management anywhere in my Zymic control panel
Are you still using them for hosting? If so you will need to contact them to get the MX record changed. If you are moving away completely, get the domain registrar to manage your DNS (Change your nameservers to them) and adjust the records within their control panel.
