Changing your MX records to use Google

Step by step instructions on changing your MX entries to google:

  1. Login to cPanel for the domain you wish to use google apps/gmail for.
  2. Navigate to the Zone Editor section.
  3. Next to the relevant domain, select Manage.
  4. Use the filter option to just show MX records.
  5. Edit the existing record shown, and populate the priority field with 1 & the destination field with ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
  6. Hit Save record.
  7. Select the dropdown next to Add Record & select Add MX Record.
  8. Repeat the process of adding the remaining four records below.
  9. Lastly, but most importantly find the cPanel section Email Routing and ensure 'Remote Mail Exchanger' (or Automatically Detect Configuration if you intend on changing it in the future) is set within the 'Email Routing' section.
