Google mail is relatively easy to set up. You only need to make a few DNS changes, and those can be done through Control Panel. If you haven't set up Google apps for your domain yet, you can do so here. They will ask you to upload a small file to your site to verify that you are the domain owner. Once you have done that you can proceed with these instructions. The first thing you want to do is update your MX records. The MX records direct mail to the proper servers for your domain. Log in to Control Panel and click the Domains tab, then in the DNS column, click Manage for the domain you are configuring for Google apps mail. There are four steps that you have to complete in Control Panel. 1. Delete the mail.HostingAccountDomain.com A record. That points your domain to our web mail system, so you will not need it. After deleting this record you can still download any mail that may remain on the server, you just won't be able to reach web mail through the URL based on your domain name. You are going to set up a CNAME record to function as mail.HostingAccountDomain.com. 2. Add the CNAME record as shown. Note that Google may display the server name with a trailing dot, but you are going to leave that dot off when you enter the server name in the Destination field. 3. Now delete the existing internetmailserver.net MX record. 4. Click the Add button to enter the Google MX server information. The MX records are listed here. When entering the MX records, leave the first field blank and remove the trailing dot from the server name, as you did when setting up the CNAME record. Enter each of the five Google MX servers. When you're finished, your MX record section should look like this (some Google instruction pages list seven MX servers, this shows their configuration for five): Go back to the Google apps page for your domain and click on Service Settings > Email. Then click the Change URL link. Click the radio button for (custom) and enter "mail" into the field. This is going to point to the CNAME record you set up in Control Panel. On the next page click the I've completed these steps button. Google apps should then log you back in to your Google control panel. Next to the Email link you should see a status of "Updating..." If you see a status of "Inactive," double check your MX and CNAME entries in your Winhost DNS settings. That's it, you're finished. If your domain is not newly registered, you should be able to access Google mail within an hour or so. Bear in mind that Google says it could take as long as 48 hours to verify your MX record changes, though it rarely takes that long.
