Did you know that you can setup email accounts from your own domain using the power of the user-friendly Gmail browser-based email system?
As an example, letís assume you own the domain ez-host.net and your name is Greg. You could easily set up email@example.com as your email address.
Go to the Google Apps Gmail page and click the button that says "Get Started".
Enter your information and click "Next".
Select the first option "Use a domain name I have already purchased", enter the domain you want to use and then click "Next".
Now you will create your account. Enter the information required and then click "Accept and signup".
Now that your account has been created, we can start the domain verification process. Click the "Start Setup button.
Click the "Verify Domain" button.
Select "Other" from the drop down list and then click "Begin verification".
Select the "Alternate methods" tab and then select the "HTML tag". Your HTML tag will need to be pasted into the Metatag area of your administrative website under "Header Code".
Once your metatag is in place , click the "Verify" button.
The verification process should now be complete!
The final step of this process is adding the Gmail MX Records to your domain. Google provides their own mail servers, which you can read about here.
Add the Google MX-Records to your domain DNS by going to Account Information >> Domain Management >> Add MX-Records.
To add mailboxes and mailbox aliases to your Google account return to the Google Admin Console and click "Users".
To add a new user click the Add User icon on the top right hand side of the USERS page. Assign the mailbox name, in this case "bhunt".
The new user should now appear in your user list.
To add a mailbox Alias to a current user click the user name in the User Admin Console as shown above then click "Add an Alias" on the right-hand side of the page.
