Question

Domain Transwer www.domain.com or domain.com

  • Posted January 20, 2014

When adding a domain, should I use www.domain.com or domain.com in the name field?

The reason I ask is that I’ve added a domain and pointed it at a droplet. I used www.domain.com when I set up DNS and the domain uses google apps for email. Everything works but incoming email.

I get this error back when sending email to it from another google apps account, “Technical details of temporary failure: DNS Error: DNS server returned general failure”

I’m wondering if by using www.pdxindependents.org, the email is misconfigured to be address@www.pdxindependents.org.

FYI - the domain in questions pdxindependents.org

Ah! I did not setup an spf record, just the google apps mx records.

I’m not too sure about how email can be effected by www anyways. I guess your config. at DO may not setup correctly. <br> <br>Did you setup TXT and MX records? <br> <br>check this: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-a-spf-record-for-your-domain-with-google-apps <br> <br>
