Setting up Paubox Encrypted Email for G Suite (Google Apps) contains two parts: Changing DNS records and Setting up Inbound and Outbound encryption.
Part I: Changing DNS Records for G Suite (Google Apps)
G Suite (Google Apps) asks that you setup your MX records so that they look similar to these:
MX 1 aspmx.l.google.com.
MX 5 alt2.aspmx.l.google.com.
MX 5 alt1.aspmx.l.google.com.
MX 10 alt4.aspmx.l.google.com.
MX 10 alt3.aspmx.l.google.com.
To get Paubox Inbound Security going, you’ll need to make two changes to your domain’s DNS records. First, change your MX record so that it has just one MX record. To change the MX record, figure out who your domain name host is and then update your domain host records.
The only MX record you want to have for your domain name is: mx2.paubox.com
Second, change your TXT record so that it’s set to:
v=spf1 include:_spf.paubox.com include:_spf.google.com -all
Before making these changes however, make sure we have verified that you are correctly setup on our end first. Click here to get started.
