    Okay so I am using google apps to setup my domain email with gmail. I got it all setup and I am trying to receive email into the account with gmail but it won't receive, it only lets me send. I also get a delivery failure trying to send emails to the account.

    I changed the MX records like google told me to, but still no luck.

    Set up email delivery


    Changing Mail Exchange (MX) records

    Mail Exchange (MX) records control how incoming email is routed for your domain. Before Google can host your email, you'll need to change these MX records to point to our servers.
    If your domain already has email addresses, please be careful changing MX records. To avoid disruption in email service, be sure to create the same set of user accounts with the control panel before changing your MX records Learn more

    If you're not ready to change your MX records yet, use the temporary email address (<username>@anyluckyday.com.test-google-a.com) assigned to your user accounts when you create them. The temporary email address will be deactivated once you change the MX records. You must also verify domain ownership before using any Google Apps.


    SHOW INSTURCTIONS FOR: CPANEL


    1. Log in to your cPanel account.
    2. Click Mail.
    3. Click Modify Mail Exchanger (MX Entry). A list of your current MX records will appear.
    4. Click Change an MX Entry.
    5. In the Change MX for... field, enter ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
    6. Click Change.
    I followed the directions, can't receive emails still :dunno:
