  1. Remove Existing MX Records: Remove any existing non-Google MX records.

  2. Add Google MX Records: You can find the required Google's MX records here (external link opens in a new window).

  3. Setup SPF, DKIM, and DMARC: These steps improve mail deliverability. Remove any existing non-Google SPF, DKIM, or DMARC DNS TXT records before adding the Google entries. The following Google guides detail the required SPF, DKIM, and DMARC entries:
