    GoogleApps question

    I want to set up Google Apps to use the mail (mail.domain.com) and docs (docs.domain.com) bit of it, but I want the actual domain to point to my web hosting company

    Which settings should I have?

    When I enabled it via name.com, it added all of these DNS records, and removed my original A record pointing to my domain.

    It added MX pointing my domain to their domain (example)

    MX domain.com alt1.aspmx.l.google.com
    MX domain.com aspmx2.googlemail.com

    and then some CNAME records

    CNAME mail.domain.com ghs.google.com

    but then it also made three A records

    A domain.com xx.xx.xx.xx

    Anyway, none of the IPs actually work if I view them in Firefox, and I didn't want Google Sites anyway, so I disabled it and removed the A records and added my own again, but now my site won't load up

    The server is definitely up because I can view it via IP and it's hostname, but now via my domain name.

    I know it says up to 48 hours but whenever I update DNS records they're always updated instantly.

    Also, is it possible to use Gmail Notifier (desktop) with a GoogleApps email?
