    It is possible to send mail from Gmail and "Google Apps for your Domain" email accounts) via your own server, you just have to set it up by entering your SMTP, username and password into Gmail. You then have the option, from Gmail, to send as that email account, with the sender IP matching your SPF record.

    This always works fine with 'real' (i.e. not parked) domains on my server when I enter info along the lines of
    password: xxxxx

    ... where has been setup as an actual email account via cPanel.

    I tried but failed to get it working with the following info:
    password: xxxxx

    ... where I had set up an email account for

    Do parked domains have SMTP servers?

    I would be very grateful for any advice.
