550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist...was rejected by the server for the recipient domain...aspmx.l.google.com

I have Googled this very issue, and it almost always pertains to Google Apps. However, I am using gmail only, having mapped mydomain.co.za via DNS records, to Google mail servers, and added mail aliases to gmail.
 
I have run a test, "http://www.intodns.com/beanrushcoffees.co.za" that displays my domains entire DNS listing, which looks as if it has propagated, and where you can see the MX record mappings to Google's mail servers.
 
I have added new email addresses to gmail's: Seetings >> Accounts and Import >> Send mail as. The title "send mail as", might be an indication that mail can be sent 'as', but not received 'as' a particular account.
 
Is this where Google Apps has the advantage over gmail, which can't receive in the capacity of a mapped email account? Is it possible to map mydoman and gmail, to use user@mydomain email address to send and receive mail on?

AFAIK you can't use your domain with Gmail in any way other than forwarding from somewhere else to Gmail. AFAIK using Google Apps is the only way to use Google for your mail hosting.

Thanks, AFAIK is now based on AFAYK, and my worst expectation has been realised, on your knowledge. Dang!
 
That's it then, I have to pay my ISP for mail, which I can forward to gmail, if I want, that's all I can do.

I have reverted to my ISP's mail in the DNS config.
