This guide will show you how to configure your Google Workspace email to configure a personalized email with your domain.
The setup wizard in Google Workspace is very easy to follow, when you start the process you must provide certain information about your business (Name, Location, Number of employees, etc.).
Once you have completed the basic information, it will ask you if you want to buy a domain or if you are going to use your own.
It then asks if you want to add email accounts, you can add the ones you need at this point or do it later.
Create MX Records
The next stage is to edit the DNS of your domain.
Do it from your Jumpseller store. For this you must enter the control panel of your store in the section Settings > Domains, click on your custom domain and you will add the DNS you need in this section.
In the DNS Configuration section select the “Nameservers” method from the drop-down list.
In the lower section called Advanced DNS Configuration you will make the following modifications:
In the Record column select MX from the drop-down list.
In the Data, column, paste exactly 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
You need to add a sixth line to the above records, with the custom MX record that Google Workspace gives you.
You find it in step number 5 of the Google Workspace configuration screen.
Your records should finally be 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 Code of your custom MX (note that you must add the number 15 at the beginning of the line, then space and then your code)
In ** TTL ** write
Your configuration should look like this:
Then click Add.
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 correctly.
If a registry was misconfigured, you will see a screen like this:
Correct the record indicated in the Advanced DNS Settings panel in your store and then in Google Workspace click “Retry Activation”.
If MX validation is not available, Verify your domain using any of these other methods.
How to add a custom URL for a Google Workspace service
To make it easier for users to find the core services of Google Workspace, you can create a custom URL for each service.
If you purchased your domain from a Google partner during the Google Workspace registration process, you do not need to create custom addresses for your Gmail, Calendar, Drive services, Sites and Groups for companies. Google has already customized these addresses for you!
If you don’t have a domain from a Google partner, you can use the following Google Guide to get a custom URL for your Google Workspace service.
