    After the MX records point to Google, how do I access my emails? Am I using the entire email address that I had with my domain such as imkingtut1@eneek.com or how do I do it? I need a lot of help here. Thanks

    I would assume youd log into your google account and check the mail. When you change the mx records it should go there..

    I currently have email for name@name.com, which is hosted in BV, forwarded to a gmail account. How is this different? Thanks for clarification.

    If your using Gmail for receiving your sites emails then it might be a good idea to download and install this handy Tool which once installed and configured will log you in as soon as your pc is turned on and Notifie you of any emails you have. without open your browser. Note That the notifiecation sound can be changed though the windows c-panel. not sure on mac

    If I switch from using Vodahost-hosted mail (using Squirrel) to the Google Apps mail, will I still see my historic e-mail through Google Apps mail or will that still have to be accessed using Squirrel? I'm obviously concerned about losing access to the old mail if I switch.

    Thanks

    Be sure to select "Save Copy On Server" in your server-based webmail before linking Gmail access, which will maintain the archive of email received through your Domain on the server's webmail dashboard.

    Essentially, it is the same as using Outlook: once email is "polled" (retrieved, 'pulled from') from the server, it will reside in that application's dashboard unless your select "Save a Copy On The Server."

    Thanks for that. I have set up the GMail side of things but have a couple of loose ends to tidy up.

    I couldn't see options anywhere when I was editing the MX info to keep records (or duplicate records) on the Vodahost server. Can you point me in the right direction to use this option.

    In cPanel - Mail - MX editing section - I wasn't sure if I should delete the MX record pointing to my domain name so I have, for the moment, kept it at priority '0', especially as the Google setup procedure told me to add their MX info as priority '1'. Again, can you just confirm what I should do here.

    Many thanks

    Paul
