It came to my attention that in the past when setting up Google Apps via Fatcow Hosting, that Google Apps doesn’t give you much help with what MX records you need to use to make it all work. So I had just a couple of minutes and decided to make this quick post to give you some ideas on how I was able to get it to work for a few of my clients using Fatcow.
Essentially as you may know, that in Google Apps you need to point your MX Records from your hosting company to Google’s. This gets the major part out of the way to get you started on that process. Visit here to learn more about setting up Google Apps.
Follow these steps to access your MX Records to modify:
- Access your control panel
- Click on “Domain” drop down on the top menu
- Select “Domain Central”
- Select the “plus sign” next to the domain you want to change
- Select “DNS”
- From the Modify drop down box below select “MX records”
- Then enter the below MX Records
So I was a bit of a slacker because I should have mentioned that you could us the “@” instead of the asterisks. After a few of you fine folks contacted me for help, I realized I better get this up to save you a few more minutes!
I hope this helps a little and my apologies it was a tad bit short on explaining! If you have questions.. just leave the comments below and I will attempt to do my best to help!
