Once your Google Apps account has been created, then you can manage email for your domain using their web-based control panel. **Email coming into the account will begin working once you make your site live.
The control panel will be located at the following address:
Where mydomain.com should be replaced with the domain of your website. Once you have signed-in (using your primary account name), you can create additional email accounts, nicknames (aliases), and email lists (addresses that forward to multiple accounts).
You can access webmail for any account on your domain by visiting the following address:
Where mydomain.com should be replaced with the domain of your website.
Google Apps/Gmail supports POP and IMAP access using your favorite email client on both Windows and Apple computers. We recommend IMAP access. You can setup your email client once your site is live. To setup your email client:
1. A one-way communication path (POP). Your device asks us for data and pulls it from our servers — but that’s it. Things you do on your device have no effect on the server. If you read a message on your phone, then log in to Google Apps, you will see that same message marked as unread. It may start to feel like Groundhog Day.
2. A two-way communication path (IMAP). Unlike with POP, your devices talk back to our servers and sync your changes automatically with IMAP. When you sign in to your Google Apps account in a web browser, actions you’ve taken on your email client or mobile device (like putting a message in a ‘work’ folder) will also appear in Google Apps (your message will already have a ‘work’ label on it). This all happens automatically once you set up IMAP, so you don’t have to read or sort all your mail twice. This is really helpful when accessing Google Apps from multiple devices.
Google Apps provides extensive online help with email setup and configuration.
