Hey, I am not good with all this DNS stuff but i am looking to use Google Apps to provide my email... To do this i need to add MX records but when i go to Domain>DNS management it says: "This domain is not properly configured to use DNS management. DNS Management will only work if the domain is using our name servers (NS1.NAME.COM, NS2.NAME.COM, NS3.NAME.COM, and NS4.NAME.COM)."

But i have to use to make the site point to my server...

How do i add these mx records?
