Easy Google G Suite Integration (as SMTP gateway)

Being able to easily integrate G Suite (Google Apps) would be great. We have all of our email setup through G Suite and it is a popular email service. Like the SMTP add-on, but for G Suite.

This goes hand and hand with being able to access the DNS add-on directly.

I don't mind paying extra, but the way things are setup is really confusing.

    I would love this too!! But ill be using CloudFlare in the meantime for sure!!

    Use Cloudflare for DNS, it's free, distributed, and VERY fast. They even have a free tier for CDN which works well for many sites.

    Cloudflare has a great control panel that makes it very easy to change your MX records and point them to Google. It will take just a few minutes to set up.

    It's always a great idea to have your DNS separate from your Registrar and Host (which should also be separate!) as it makes it a lot easier to change hosts or registrars should it be necessary.

    This isn't really necessary or even possible. If you'd like Google Apps you can go to Google and purchase the number of users you need.

    Set up your DNS to direct your incoming mail to Google and you're mostly done.

    For best results add some domain aliases to make user login easier and set up mail authentication with Google.

    Could you explain how this makes sense for CloudWays? Apps is it's own deal, and entirely separate. You connect it to your domain by adding DNS entries. Since CW doesn't handle DNS, it makes no sense (at least that I can see) to get them in the middle of setting up Google Apps. Just set it up, point the web traffic to CW and the MX records (and such) to Google Apps.
