Setting up Google MX records on your domain




To deliver email to your Gmail inbox, you will need to configure your domain name to route your incoming email to Googles email servers. To do this you will need to add MX records to point to your email to Googles servers.

Googles MX records are as follows (with the priorities in brackets):
ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM             (0)
ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM    (10)
ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM    (20)
ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM    (30)
ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM    (40)


To do this please follow the steps below if you don't have hosting:

1) Login to Your Client Area

2) Once logged in, click on Domains and then on Managed DNS


3) From this screen, you will be able to create a new DNS Zone or edit an existing DNS Zone. You can create a new DNS Zone for any domain, whether it is registered through LetsHost or not. When creating a Zone, you will be asked for the domain name (leave out the 'www.' bit) and an IP address.

4) Once you have created a DNS Zone, you will be edit it to set the above Google MX records

5) You will need to delete any current MX records before entering in the new ones

6) Enter in the Google MX records and save these new settings
