Email configuration can be confusing. How do you set it up? Should you have email accounts set up through your hosting or something like GSuite? Are non-domain email addresses frowned upon? So many questions regarding email when you’re starting out, and while we’re no experts we’ve certainly had to tackle questions like these ourselves. We’ll share what we’ve learned and how we set up email for ourselves as well as our clients.

Thanks so much for a great episode!! 🙂 I have learned so much from such a wonderful group.
Loved this chat as I am having problems with email and forms in DIvi.
One of the ladies said that if want to switch to Gsuite, and change the MX records (I’ll do this in Siteground) to Google, then I should download and copy all current emails as they will disappear from my inbox as I am only seeing a mirror version of Siteground emails.
Is this necessary? My client will not want to download and copy emails.
I think I’ve changed MX in the past this was not an issue. But, now I am scared to move this client to GSuite because of this added hassle, which the client will not agree to. Could you confirm if I client will lose all past emails? I am second guessing myself and worried, as the client will lose it if I lose their emails
