GoogleApps - Email Settings
I just want to check something with the rest of the community
I have Google Apps on my domain as i use it for my email, now at the moment pop and smtp settings are
is there anyway i could change that to be mail.mydomain.com ?
or am i correct in saying you can only have one CNAME per sub-domain?
Cheers, just wanted to check

Strictly speaking yes, you're right in that you should only have one CNAME/A record for a host but in this case you're lucky because pop.gmail.com and smtp.gmail.com resolve at IP level to the same 2 IPs.
Thus meaning you can alias (CNAME) mail.yourdomain.com to either of them and it should certainly for now and I can't see them changing it work fine.
kim@prozac ~ $ host smtp.gmail.com
smtp.gmail.com is an alias for gmail-smtp-msa.l.google.com.
gmail-smtp-msa.l.google.com has address 18.104.22.168
gmail-smtp-msa.l.google.com has address 22.214.171.124
kim@prozac ~ $ host pop.gmail.com
pop.gmail.com is an alias for gmail-pop.l.google.com.
gmail-pop.l.google.com has address 126.96.36.199
gmail-pop.l.google.com has address 188.8.131.52

So, for the benefit of anyone else watching.
CNAME'd mail.mydomain.com to pop.gmail.com and both sending/receiving work fine from KMail but it does ask you to accept the SSL certificate because it's not issued to mail.mydomain.com.

and just for the record, the above works fine with my domain also.
