I have a domain that we will call mydomain.com.

The mail was originally set up using Google apps for domains. Somewhere along the way to go changed a couple things about Google apps for domains. Number one the name. Number two it's no longer free.

I have successfully set up the domain so that I can use my browser to go to: mail.mydomain.com.

My problem comes in when I try to add a alias to the domain and use it successfully. Lets call it myalias.com.

  1. I can't seem to get Google to respond to: mail.myalias.com. I have tried both setting the DNS to ghs.googe.com and I have tried setting a CNAME to mail.mydomain.com.

  2. On my iPhone I would like to have the mail come from [email protected]. But I can't figure out how to configure the iPhone to do it.

What am i missing?

In your control panel, you need to add your alias to the Google Apps account to allow the receipt of email:


Then in your DNS, you need to setup mail.youralias.com as a redirect to mail.yourdomain.com

You then setup [email protected] as a send-as for your [email protected] :


Finally, you install the Gmail app on your phone. It will respect your send-as settings in your Google Apps account.
