Setting up your domain for Google Apps

Login to your Securehost.ie Account

Goto Domains > DNS Manager

Either edit the zone if it is already created or add a new zone.

Ensure you remove any current MX records from your zone; most likely mail.yourdomain.com

To add these Edit your domain zone scroll to the bottom.

For "Blank or @" type yourdomain.com.
Change the TTL.
Select Record type from drop down.

Then Click save below the Add Record.

Repeat until you've added all of the above records.
