Gmail / Google Apps, Send Email via Parked Domain?


Jun 8, 2003
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
user: [email protected]
password: xxxxx

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

MY QUESTION: is there any way to do this with parked domains?

I tried but failed to get it working with the following info:
user: [email protected]
password: xxxxx

... where I had set up an email account for [email protected]

Do parked domains have SMTP servers?

Should I be using some other domain for the SMTP server address?

Is what I'm trying to do even possible?

I would be very grateful for any advice.
