Hello,

if your your domain is verified with google, you will go ahead and add the following MX records to your DNS server vis CWP

go to cwp > domain functions > List DNS Zone > check the domain you want to edit records  and click edit records.

delete the existing MX records and add the following:

ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.   1
ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.   5
ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.   5
ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.   10
ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.   10

If your domain is not verified, you may have to verify by choosing the method  (such as TXT record, HTML file, or meta tag).
If you need to verify your domain:

1. Find the unique MX verification record provided by the G Suite Setup Wizard.
2. If you choose TXT record,Copy the entire record (ends in mx-verification.google.com) and paste it in the Value/Answer/Destination/Target column.
3. Make sure the record's priority is set to Low or to 15 or greater.

for example, in the CWP DNS, the following record needs to be added:

select Record type  - TXT

and enter the following:

Record name  - <yourdomain name>
TTL - 1440
Text Record - <ends in mx-verification.google.com>


4. Save your changes
