Namecheap MX records

Introduction

To update your MX records with this Domain Name System (DNS) provider, first understand MX records and learn how to configure them for Google Apps in general.

Steps

  1. Log in to your account at NameCheap.com.
  2. Click Manage Domains.
  3. Click the domain that you'd like to use with Google Apps for Your Domain.
  4. On the left side, under Host Management click All Host Records
  5. Under Mail Settings choose the 3rd radio button which says User (Mail Server's Host Name Required) then click Save Changes
  6. Include the MX record values shown in the MX record values table.
  7. Click Save and you are done.
Be aware it may take as long as 72 hours before DNS changes are propagated, depending on the time to live (TTL) that was configured for your records. Until records have been updated worldwide, you will still receive traffic to your old server.

Follow the steps within Troubleshoot MX records to fix your DNS setup.
