I am setting up Google Apps for jaalibean.com and need to setup their email such that it's received in the new gmail accounts. I also need to migrate their old email to these accounts. Can someone help me with this?

Hello jaalibean, and thank you for your question.

As this is a public forum, I've gone ahead and removed your cell phone number from this post to help protect your privacy.

In order to use Google Apps on a domain, you first typically need to modify the domain name's <strong>MX</strong> Mail Exchange records to point to Google. It doesn't appear the domain name you've mentioned is hosted with us, but our guide on <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/cpanel/cpanel-email/modfying-mx-records" target="_blank">modifying your MX records</a> should still be relevant in your case. You might just need to contact your web host to do this for you if they're not using cPanel.

You can also take a look at the official Google documentation on <a href="http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=172171" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">getting started with Google Apps</a> which details the rest of the process as well.

If you had any other questions at all, please let us know!
