Google apps not validating mx records
If you are using Google Apps, you will need to verify your domain with Google before you can use any of the Google Apps services.
The automatic verification process does not work with Hover so here is how you would verify manually.
Make sure you are using the Hover nameservers:ns1.hover.comns2.Edits to the DNS in your Hover account will not apply to your domain if you are not using our DNS servers. All it does is pre-populate the MX records for you, and I think adds some default CNAME records as well to help beginners out.They're not endorsing Google Apps, heck, right next to that option is the option for letting DH handle your email.That IP address is the server that will be handling the email for your domain. These are set into a chronological priority order, where the lowest number gets priority.Incoming email checks for the server set for the lowest priority first.
