Step 4: Add your HostPapa records to Google Workspace

You can find the HostPapa records that you need to add to Google Domains in this article.

  1. From the Type list under Custom resource records, select MX.
  2. Enter the corresponding value in the Name field.
  3. Leave the default value in the TTL field.
  4. Enter the rest of the information where applicable.
  5. Click on the + icon.

Please note the following points:

  • It might take several hours for the records to update. You might not get the new email messages immediately. In the meantime, you will keep receiving messages in your old email provider.
  • If the MX records setup validation in progress message appears in the Admin console for more than few hours, confirm that you entered the correct MX address records and priorities. Revisit the configurations to make sure that it is correct.
