Hi Keat Wei,

Thanks fro posting your question. You need not change the CNAME record. You'll need to set up MX records to handle mail for your Google Apps account. Here's a few links that you may find helpful:

I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.

Thank you!
