Setting up gmail email


#1

I just signed up for dreamhost with a domain I already owned. I checked the “use gmail for email” tab. When I followed the link to connect my domain to Google Apps, I received the message that it was already connected and I should contact the administrator. I cannot find anything that explains how to set up a first (administrator) email account with gmail. Can anybody help?

Thanks!

Panel > Email > Manage Email

Gmail accounts are listed right down the bottom and link to the setup page for each individual domain. It’s fairly straight forward to run through the setup process and basically involves creating an admin account for the domain.

If Google is insistent that the domain is already registered and disallows access to be re-registered, you’ll need to contact Google and inform them that you are the domain owner and that there is a problem. They’ll fix you up.
