When setting up Google Apps to receive other POP email accounts (as you might with gmail) you need to point your MX records to Google servers but then you need to Verify your email. If you can’t access your new account, you should be able create “Catch-all address” via your Google Apps / Settings to retrieve the Verification email to finish your set-up.
(Before doing any of these steps read this article first to see if it applies to you?)
Update your MX records
If you create your own email accounts via cPanel you should be able to update your MX records here.
Go to cPanel / Mail / MX Entry, find and Select “MX Entry” ( You can search the cPanel home page by pressing [CTRL] + F and search for “MX”)
Find “Add New Record” and add the following records:
Priority | Mail server
More on this go to “Google Apps mail servers”
In your Gmail account go to Options / Mail Settings / Accounts / Add another email address you own, set this up with your email account details (you can find these in your cPanel, go to “Mail / Email Accounts” find the email account you want to add then select “More” and click “Configure Email Client” for details.
Verify the email account
You’ll need to Verify the email account with Google before you can start receiving email but after directing your MX records to Google Apps you might not be able to access the email your setting up to Verify it?
If you’ve already set-up a Master Google Apps Account and your adding additional Email Accounts you may need to create a Catch-all address to catch the Verify email.
In your Google account click your account name (email@example.com.. in the top right cnr of the browser window) select “Account settings” then go to the “Settings” tab and find “Catch-all address” select “Forward the email to:” and add your existing email.
You should then be able to access your Verify emails and finish setting up your other accounts, then just set “Catch-all address” back to “Discard the email” if you wish.
