Google Apps Question

So I read in another post that through Google Apps you are able to emulate a xyz@yourstorename.com email address. Has anybody done this successfully? I have been trying to get my site verfied for a few days now and no luck. It's probably because I didn't change my CNAME options correctly. Google also says you can verify domain ownership by uploading a .html file onto your site. Can someone run me through how to do this correctly with shopify? Thanks.

We are using Google Apps for email. It works great. Especially their spam filtering. I have not had one spam email make it to my inbox and it catches about 50 a day!

Not sure what you mean by verifying domain ownership and uploading an .html file for Google Apps? All I need to do was set the mx records they provided through the admin interface and it took off.

Could you elaborate a little more on exactly what you have and what you are trying to accomplish?

Hey Dan,

This is where I’m getting lost. When I log in to my google apps account, it takes me to my dashboard screen. There I’m getting a message that says…

“To activate Google Apps services you must verify that you own your domain – kurthdesignworks.com. Verify domain ownership.”

When you click on “verify domain ownership”, you get two options of veryfing ownership. Changing CNAME options through your host or uploading a .html file on to your website.

Did you not have to do any of this to set up email accounts?

Well I went ahead and signed with an domain name I had laying around and it appears they now make you verify your domain. Basically you will need to verify with a CNAME record as you can’t upload the .html file into shopify.

Sign into your hosting or registrars admin interface and create a cname record that looks like this:

googlecode.yourdomain.com -> google.com

and click verify. Once you are verified you can then make your mx record changes. There is a link to the direction on the prior page from the verify page on what setting you need.

If this is over your head, I can do it for you for a small fee. Contact me at dwright at ddrecreational dot com if your interested.

Thanks for the offer Dan. I’ll send you an email in the next couple of days if I can’t figure it out.
