5. Now you need to verify to Google that you do actually own the specified domain name. To do that you can either upload an html file to your server or change your cname record. Google will check this and this may take 48 hours to complete.

6. Now go back to the dashboard screen and click on activate email just under mail tab. This will take you an instructions screen on how to change your MX records. For this you will need access to your domain name (either at your hosting company or domain register)
