To set up G Suite mail on your domain, log in to your cPanel control panel. Click here for instructions on how to get to cPanel.
Once you’re in the cPanel control panel, click on the Zone Editor under the Domains section:
Next, click the Manage button for the domain you’d like to configure.
Find the existing MX record in the list, and click the Edit button:
For this record, make the following changes:
- Change priority from 0 to 1
- Change destination from existing record to ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
Click the Save Record button to save the change.
Now we need to add the other MX records as well for G Suite to work properly on the domain.
Click the dropdown arrow next to the Add Record button, and select the Add “MX” Record option:
Leave the Name, TTL, Class, and Type fields as is, and fill in the Priority and Destination fields with the following records:
Click the Add Record button to save changes once you’ve filled in the fields.
Here’s an example:
Make sure to add all records using the method above, and in total, you should have 5 MX records for G Suite to work properly.
Using built-in filters, you can filter MX records to ensure they’ve all been added:
The last step is to set up email routing so that our Cloud Instance knows it shouldn’t relay emails to your email accounts that were added locally.
Go back to the cPanel home, and click the Email Routing option under the Email section:
Select your domain from the dropdown list:
Finally, select the Remote Mail Exchanger option and click the Change button to save changes:
That’s it! Now you’ve set up your domain to use G Suite email. However, please note that it can take up to 24 hours for the DNS changes to propagate globally and load across the internet.
