Changing MX Records to point to Google Apps
Posted on 2009-04-05
I currently have 15 email accounts using my own domain name being hosted by mycrappyhost.com.
The domain name Registrar is not mycrappyhost.com
I do not have a website and don't currently need one.
Email is VERY important to us.
I know I can use Google Apps Standard or Premium to access my email address's using my own domain name.
#1 Does changing the MX Record in mycrappyhost.com's domain settings to point to Google Apps Email Servers ensure that my email will still work if mycrappyhost.com mail server goes down?
#2 Can I eliminate mycrappyhost.com all together by changing DNS / MX records on my domain Registrar to point to Google Apps and access my 15 email accounts from Google Apps?
Again, I don't need a website or webhosting.
Any advice / direction would be appreciated.
