General Information
I appreciate that sent me instructions how to forward my email to my Gmail account, but I must not have made my question clear. I purchased a Google Apps account to go with my website (hosted by Webhosting Hub). So I have a gmail address as the only address associated my website. I changed the MX records successfully. Now, I want to know: Is there any way to access that Gmail, from my Web Hosting Hube CPanel, as I could if I were using SquirrelMail or Horde? Is there a way to connect my Web Hosting Hub account with my website's gmail?

Hello sonamdolma,

Thank you for your question. When you pointed your MX records to google, it tells the world that they are exclusively handling your email. So any emails essentially skip over our servers, and go directly to google.

You can use an email client such as Thunderbird, or Outlook to check your email with google.

Webmail in cPanel will not function with your gmail hosted accounts, since we are not handling any of your email on our servers.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below, or contact live Tech Support.

They are available 24/7 via:
Phone: 877-595-4482 x2
Chat (there is a link on the top right).

Thank you,
