    In Google Apps, I need to:
    "set the CNAME destination to the following address: ghs.google.com".
    How do I do that in Cpanel?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    One email account from my web host service and another from Google Apps?

    Hello, can anyone help please,

    I have an email account on my Mac (eg. peter@mydomain.com) which has been bouncing emails since I set up my new Google Apps account: info@mydomain.com
    (I use cPanel to manage my Web Hosting domain)

    How do I setup my 'peter@mydomain.com' account to start working again, without affecting my new Google Apps email account 'info@mydomain.com'?

    Many thanks for any help.

    You cannot change the CNAME through cPanel. It can either be done through WHM or through shell. In both cases , you need to be 'root' . Else, you will have to get your host to do it for you.

    Both of those are ridiculously simple but as IntaCarma_Tech, you need
    to be the server administrator (or at least a reseller) on the server.

    If you are an "end user", you will need to contact your host for assistance
    or move the DNS control of your domains to a third party DNS management
    where you can add the CNAMEs yourself. Don't take this advice though
    unless you have a thorough understanding of how the DNS system works
    or you stand to screw up your current web hosting account.

    You should create a new thread for this query..

    Where is your email account peter@mydomain.com created? In cpanel? Delete it from cpanel and create it in Google Apps (if your Google apps is working properly). Take a proper back up before deleting..
