I've registered a domain name through Yola and want to get email addresses. I've registered with Google Apps as suggested, and it asks me to download a verification file and then upload it to my site. I don't how to do this. I've tried to upload a file through File Manager, and the file appears in the uploaded files but when try to confirm that it's there, I just get a message saying "404. Sorry, we can't seem to find that page, click here to return to the homepage".

Hello Rosanna,

In order for Google Apps to verify your site, you need to add the TXT file. Please follow these detailed instructions given here: Setting up your email with Google Apps.

Please let us know if you have any trouble with this.

That's all fine and dandy but... You get a message saying TXT successfully added to the Domain Name Server, but then when Google verifies it says it can't find the TXT file. It doesn't matter whether you wait ten minutes or ten days it won't find the TXT. I've been at this for a month getting nowhere and I'm about to give up on Yola AND Google
