  • Thanks for these instructions Mhel! I tried setting up my email yesterday but my email status says it’s still updating. Can’t wait for it to be active so I can set it up with Thunderbird. My question now is do you have to repeat these steps to all your domains? Looks like adding domain alias is only available for business edition.

  • Hi. I have problems configuring google apps
    I follow all the steps and i can send email from de google mail, but i cant receive anything, just send. And the important problem is that a can’t see my webpage since i do all these changes.
    Any idea?
    Thanks 🙂

    • Sorry for the late response. Did you already get it fixed?

      I hope you only entered the MX entries. Let me know if you’re still having issues.

      • i have also same problem except viewing website. i can view my website. but i can’t rcv mail from other.

  • I never knew you could use a custom email using gmail. Thanks for for a very detailed and comprehensive tutorial—well done! I’ve been using Google Calender and Docs for about a year now. I wish google docs was more compatible with videos though—specifically mp3’s

    • You’re welcome, Tim. 🙂

      Oh yeah, I wish they’d allow mp3s too or other file types soon. 🙂

    Awesome post, I really appreciate the help 🙂

  • What is the advantage of this over just setting up an email on your domain and then having it forwarded to your gmail account?



    • If you have limited space on your hosting, this is the best way for you to receive large files or numerous emails without worrying about them filling up your server.

  • Hello, Thank you for the instructions. This really help me a lot in understanding on how to set up custom email. By the way, do you know any other ways on how to setup custom email except with google apps and moniker?

    • @Georgia Lucas, if you have cPanel access, you can setup your Webmail on your server / hosting. But if you don’t have your own hosting, then, this is the only option for you.

  • Thanks for the tutorial! It seems moniker makes it a little more difficult than need be for adding google apps. Waiting for it to update me now! : )

  • Wow! This was great, thank you. I am going to utilize this as I love using Google and Gmail, but I didn’t know we could incorporate it into any domain we own. Thanks a ton!
