Setting up Email to work with Google Apps

You can set up your email account to work with Google Apps by using a simple wizard that is available on your cPanel account. However, it is important to understand that thereafter your mail service will be hosted by Google Apps and will not be available from your account server. This can though be reverted in the future if you decide to step away from using Google Apps.


The first step is to log into your cPanel account. If you are unsure on how to do this, please view the following help article - 'How to log into cPanel'.
