Is there any way to use a custom domain in Gmail without having a Google Apps account?
I have configured my domain to use:
MX 3600 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. MX 3600 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. MX 3600 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. MX 3600 10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. MX 3600 10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
And when using
nslookup -q=mx **, everything looks fine.
But when I go into Gmail and add an additional "send as email" account, and try to send the verification mail, I get a "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)"

The error that the other server returned was: 550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist. Please try 550-5.1.1 double-checking the recipient's email address for typos or 550-5.1.1 unnecessary spaces.

Google Apps is not free any more, so that’s why I don't want to use it.
