    I'm trying to setup Google Apps for my domain and I'm having some trouble making a CNAME entry.

    I need to make a mail.mydomain.com CNAME point to Ghs.Google.com.

    My hosting server is running Direct Admin and I have the following fields available when I make a new DNS record:

    Name / Type / Value

    I currently have mail.mydomain.com entered in the name, CNAME in the type, and ghs.google.com in the value. When I perform a CNAME lookup on mail.mydomain.com it yields ghs.google.com.mydomain.com.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Put a . after com, so that the DNS server knows you mean the root of the tree.

    After ghs.google.com, mail.mydomain.com, or both?

    After ghs.google.com should do the trick.
