This should be very similar to the above in terms of what information needs adding.
To make sure that mail is delivered into the Google Apps system the correct DNS settings need to applied to the domain name.
Add the following DNS records to the domain
Priority Mail server 1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM 10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM
Moving from GOL requires the following
Return the DNS hosts back to Easily. There is a button within the Easily account next to the domain to return the domain to the Easily nameservers
Add the Google Mail DNS settings to the domain
Add the necessary site records to the DNS usually: footyjapan.com *.footyjapan.com
Point these to the correct DNS
CHECK MX RECORDS
Use the following site to check the domain names:
Current records are:
10 cfx01.new-core.com 188.8.131.52 24 hrs SMTP Test Blacklist Check 20 cfx02.new-core.com 184.108.40.206 24 hrs SMTP Test Blacklist Check 30 ms001s.new-core.com 220.127.116.11 24 hrs SMTP Test Blacklist Check
TIMELINES and OPTIONS
First option is to ask GOL to put in the Google Apps DNS this will mean we do not need to wait for the name servers to be changed back to Easily.
Changing DNS back to Easily - this can take up to 24 hrs. As soon as they are back with Easily we can put in the correct DNS There may be some mail loss if the server looks at Easily for records before they have been created Usually though the mail server should keep the mail for 48 hrs before trying to send again.
Basically if I do the DNS ASAP then mail will be delivered to the Google System and mail can be read and sent via GMail - setting up Outlook or Imail can be done afterwards.
