How to point my email to Gmail?

If you want your email messages to be delivered to Gmail instead of ScalaHosting, follow the steps below.

  1. Login to cPanel and click on MX Entry which is under the Email section.
  2. Remove all MX entries of the domain name you want to point to Gmail.
  3. After that add the Gmail MX entries as noted below.
Priority MX Entry
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

Once you do the changes allow 4-6 hours for DNS propogation. After that all your email messages will be sent to the Gmail servers.

    Make a note that the Period at the end of each is not required or accepted.

      That is right. I’ve fixed it. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. As a side note, when a DNS zone is edited the entry must have a period at the end else it will not work correctly. That’s where our confusion came from.
