How do I use Google Apps for my email?

To set up your account to work with Google Apps, you will first need to set up a Google Apps account.

Once you have the account created, you will need to get the mx entries set to the google servers. To do so, you will use the DNS Zone Editor tool in the Domains section of the cPanel.

DNS Zone Editor

    1. Choose your domain from the drop-down menu.
    2. Delete the current MX Entry (Click delete to the right of the current MX Entry)
    3. Add the following entries, where the preceding number is the priority:

 

Priority Entry
1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM
10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM

For each entry, set the name value as @, the priority as the number, and the destination as the entry itself.

Using mail.example.com to check my email

To be able to access the Google Apps by using mail.example.com, you will need to change the CNAME for the domain using the DNS Zone Editor tool in the cpanel. You would enter the following information:

Host Record: mail
TTL: 14400
Type: CNAME
Points To: ghs.google.com
