Create a Corporate Email with G Suite
Steps to configure your email
G Suite previously known as Google Apps is a platform for hosting custom emails for your business. The drawback of G Suite compared to Zoho is that there is no free plan. The process of setting up the email and domain is quite straight forward and in this article we take you through all the steps.
The setup wizard in G Suite is very easy to follow and when you start the process you have to provide some information about your business such as Name, Location, Employees and your Email.
Once you have filled out the basic information, then it asks you about your domain, now either you can purchase a domain on the spot or you can use one you already own for example mydomain.com
Next you come to the section where you can add people to your G Suite account as seen below.
Create MX Records
The next stage is to edit your domain DNS.
Important: Do not access Amazon Web Services from Gsuite. Do it from your Jumpseller store. To do this, go to your Admin Panel > Domains, search for your domain and click on Manage DNS:
Click on “CREATE RECORD SET” at the top. Select MX-Mail Exchange in “Type”:
Paste the exact records shown below in the "Value" section, on the DNS administration panel:
``` 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 10 ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 10 ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM ```
You need to add a sixth line to the previous records, with the custom MX record that Gsuite gives you.
You will find it in step number 5 of the Gsuite configuration screen.
Your records should finally look like this:
``` 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 10 ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 10 ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 15 Your custom MX code (note that you must add the number 15 at the beginning of the line, then space and then your code) ```
In TTL write
Then click on "Save the Record Set".
Now go back to the Google setup wizard and click on the "Activate Gmail" button in the lower right corner, at the bottom of the page.
If your MX records were placed correctly, everything will be working as expected. If a record was incorrectly configured, you will see a screen like this:
Please correct the wrong record in Amazon Web Services and then go back to GSuite and click on "Retry Activation".
If the MX validation is not available, verify your domain using any of these other methods.
How to add a Custom URL for a G Suite Service
To make it easy for users to find your core G Suite services, you can create a custom URL to each service.
If you purchased your domain from a Google partner during the G Suite sign-up process, you do not need to create custom addresses for your Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Sites and Groups for Business services. Google has customized these addresses for you already!
