Virtualmin CNAME records

Hi, where am i able to edit CNAME records for my domain?

I tried in Services ยป DNS Domain but i didnt find any setting with this name. Should I try with Name Alias or Address? Whats the difference ?

(I'm using Google Apps and would like to set my mailing to address.)

You already looked in the right place. :) Name Alias will create CNAME records, Address will create A records.

Be aware though that to define where email for a domain is to be directed, you need an MX record, which points to a hostname (not an IP). The record type of that hostname is not allowed to be a CNAME though, it must be an A.
