Setting Up Google Apps to Handle your Email

You can host your email using google Apps by making a change to the MX entries in Cpanel. Please follow the steps below:


Please Note:  Do not modify the MX record if you are unsure how to change it. You may submit a ticket and we can assist you.


Step 1: Login to your cPanel account.
Step 2: Click MX ENTRY.
Step 3: Select a domain from the Drop Down box
Step 4: Tick off Remote Mail Exchanger then click CHANGE.
Step 5: Under MX records, delete the Default entry that was setup there

 

it should look like: 0  |  yourdomain.com  |  edit | delete

 

so click delete then click delete again on the confirmation pop out.

 


Step 6: Add each of the below MX records one by one given each a sequentially higher priority (e.g., 0, 10, 20, 30)

 

ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.

 

Note: Please be aware that there will be a dot(.) after the entry.

Please note that it can take Google apps up to 24 hours to see these settings and to work correctly.

 

IMPORTANT: Step 7: Send us an email that you are using an outside MX/email hosting so that we can add your domain into our ignore list on the Spam filter. otherwise emails you send to your own domain or to someone else on the server here (including emails to ethicalhost) could get marked as SPAM.
