Undoubtedly, Gmail has become a very important part of each and everyday's life. Through Google Apps, they have given freedom to use Gmail for business purpose as well. Google Apps is having feature to feel like you are sending emails through your own servers, instead of Google server. You can use email id's like abc@domainname.com, xyz@domainname.com etc.. and on backend emails are sent through Gmail. Let's see how we can handle this whole thing :

3. Login to your control panel and navigate to Mail Manager. Point DNS Server’s MX records to Google Apps. Add following MX entries :

ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 1
ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 5
ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 5
ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM with priority 10
ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM with priority 10


Save them

and will look like this : 



Note : TTL should not more than 3600 seconds for Google records. 

and we are done with set up!!!!

Please let me know if you guys are facing any problem with it.
