Google Apps Setup with Plesk

Many administrators hit trouble while setting up Google Apps for domains with DNS in Plesk. Here are some vital tips for setting up with Plesk

If you are hitting the wall using Plesk, just making changes to Plesk will not be enough. You have to change the DNS setting in control panel of your Name Server provider.

  • You have to log in to your Server Command Control panel — which will be with your hosting provider and is is separate and distinct from PLESK. So you have to go to this panel and there you manage the DNS settings for your domain.
  • Add the MX records as provided in the generic instructions for Google Apps. Make sure that you set the MX pointers to .yourdomain.com. and not to mail.yourdomain.com. The mail.yourdomain.com. record will not work correctly. Here is an example:

yourdomain.com. NS your name server
yourdomain.com. NS your name server
yourdomain.com. MX 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
yourdomain.com. MX 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
yourdomain.com. MX 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
yourdomain.com. MX 10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
yourdomain.com. MX 10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
yourdomain.com. MX 10 ASPMX4.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
yourdomain.com. MX 10 ASPMX5.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
calendar.yourdomain.com. CNAME ghs.google.com.
docs.yourdomain.com. CNAME ghs.google.com.
googlexyzabcxy1ab2x3y4.yourdomain.com. CNAME google.com.
mail.yourdomain.com. CNAME ghs.google.com.
start.yourdomain.com. CNAME ghs.google.com.
cpanel.yourdomain.com. A your ip address
ensim.yourdomain.com. A your ip address
ftp.yourdomain.com. A your ip address
lists.yourdomain.com. A your ip address
yourdomain.com. A your ip address
plesk.yourdomain.com. A your ip address
www.yourdomain.com. A your ip address

 

  • You have to delete any and all references that point to your server’s IP address that have to do with mail.
  • Now login to your PLESK control panel and turn off mail for your domain.
  • Within PLESK, navigate to the DNS settings, and replicate the MX settings you set up in the online DNS panel. Here also delete any DNS settings that would resolve mail to your IP address versus to google.

 

Wait for some time for records to propagate and you are there.
