In Google Apps for business, is it possible to avoid redirects of custom domains?

Example: mail.mydomain.com -> http://mail.google.com/a/mydomain.com

(mail.google.com is blocked some places where I want to use my service)

This is most likely the behavior of the web browser specifically. Often times browsers will fall back to running the URL as a search query if a DNS record is not found.

Turning off this behavior is different for each browser. For instance, you can toggle this in Firefox by going to about:config and toggle the following keys so that they say false:

keyword.enabled
browser.fixup.alternate.enabled

How does my browser know that mydomain.com is a Google domain –  user1987442 Oct 2 '13 at 9:45

I think it is contained in th answer of this question.

In Google Apps, is there a way to completely hide the fact that you're using Google?
