Hi all.

I'm currently with Dreamhost and use their Gmail setup to allow me to use Google for my domain's email. I understand WF supports this, too.

As far as I can tell, this should just be a case of following these steps and updating the MX records for the domain (I wasn't planning on transferring the domain to WF, so these might even just stay the same, right?).

Does this sound correct? Will I lose my mail? I assume since it's stored on Gmail's servers that moving from another webhost won't impact it.

thanks! Matt

Unless I've misunderstood you, if you're not going to point your domain's DNS at us and leave your MX records as they are, then you don't need to do anything, since the MX records are already pointing to Google.
