Custom Mail CNAME – DreamHost


Custom Mail CNAME – DreamHost

I was looking into setting up mail.mydomain.com with Google Apps to make the url easier to type since I am already using Google Apps to handle email for that domain. However, you can’t set a CNAME record in dreamhost apparently without contacting support. 😦

    Actually that would be incorrect. Go to Domains -> Manage Domains. Then click on DNS under your main domain. From here you can add CNAME entries. You just won’t be able to do mail.yourdomain.com since that has already been reserved. You can however set it to webmail.yourdomain.com instead. I have setup a bunch of special entries on Dreamhost.
