    Plesk can work only with Horde and Atmail webmail applications.

    it´s a pitty, because in other Control Panel i can change the Webmail DNS, only in plesk i can´t.

    But thanks for you answer.

    I do this as a matter of course, why use your mail server space and bandwidth?

    This thread is 2 months old if still looking for solution get back to me, but there is a good plesk guide on the google apps website.

    Hi,

    The DNS template below works with Google Mail, Calendar and Docs.

    calendar.williamson.nu. CNAME ghs.google.com.
    docs.williamson.nu. CNAME ghs.google.com.
    webmail.williamson.nu. CNAME ghs.google.com.
    williamson.nu. A 123.123.123.123
    williamson.nu. MX (0) ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    williamson.nu. MX (5) ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    williamson.nu. MX (10) ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    williamson.nu. MX (15) ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.

    Setup as above and switch the local mail service for the domain off in Plesk.

    Setup google apps reflecting the URLs in the cname records to access each component.

    Now you have the web site functionality provided by plesk and the mail/calendar functionality provided by gmail ready to connect with iPhones and ipads all over the globe.

    Good luck

    Pete

    Is the same that i try here, but if i try to use webmail.mydomain go to a plesk page, because the webmail is off, and the cname is right.

    The only way this can happen is if you have defined - webmail.somedomain.com A youripaddress

    Make sure there is no A record on internal or external DNS pointing the webmail subdomain back to the server.

    It works, try the URLs.
