Using google mail app for my domain mail. Can send, can't receive

Hi - I'm registered at Godaddy, hosted with Bluehost, and have Google Apps mail for my mail. I can send mail out but can't receive. I have the 5 Google servers listed in my MX records. There was an A record pointing to Godaddy, so I changed that to point to my new IP at Bluehost. The CNAME "email" was pointing to Godadday mail server (email.secureserver.net), so I changed that to ghs.google.com

What am I doing wrong?!
thx

Sometimes DNS changes take time. Since you didn't give real domain names etc, I'm assuming you want to keep it private. That makes diagnosis of the problem a bit harder. So hopefully you can send us some error messages. Use another external email address (home/hotmail/whatever). Send to your own domain, wait for the error message. If none are received, that old methods to check if email wasn't delivered "the old way" (maybe some pop3 server somewhere?)

Hi Check on http://mxtoolbox.com/ that your MX records are pointing to google or not. also set mx record as mentioned here https://support.google.com/a/answer/174125?hl=en

also if you have webmail email address is still their, delete them and then try.

In addition to the delay from DNS, and using mxtoolbox, make sure the domain verification is complete.

As mentioned, you'll need your MX (not CNAME) records to point to Google, as follows:

example.com      MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = aspmx.l.google.com
example.com      MX preference = 20, mail exchanger = alt1.aspmx.l.google.com
example.com      MX preference = 30, mail exchanger = alt2.aspmx.l.google.com
example.com      MX preference = 40, mail exchanger = aspmx2.googlemail.com
example.com      MX preference = 50, mail exchanger = aspmx3.googlemail.com

Additionally, you'll want to use sender policy framework (SPF) in a TXT record:

"v=spf1 a mx include:_spf.google.com ~all"

Once you've made the change, you can see DNS propagate throughout various geographic locations at https://www.whatsmydns.net/

Hi - domain name is studiofli.com

here's the return mail message:
Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain studiofli.com by mail.studiofli.com. [69.195.124.179].

The error that the other server returned was:
550 No Such User Here

Open in new window


Also, looks like no CNAME is being reported, though there is one. host "email" and points to "ghs.google.com"

your MX records looks fine but they are not propagated, i think contact godaddy should resolve this.

Absolutely NONE of the records you touched are seen outside of Godaddy. Changes are either not applied, or you don't have the right to change it. Definitely needs contact with their tech support.

It was the Nameservers. I was using Bluehost instead of Godaddy.
