I recently setup a Google Apps Business account for my eBay and Amazon business.  I noticed I could send email from my Google Apps Business account, but I couldn't recieve any email. It made me ask the question to myself.  How do I setup google apps mail?  After messing with it for awhile, really I messed with it for a couple of hours before I got tired of getting the error messages.  Below is the error message I was getting:

"Google tried to deliver your message, but it was reected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 #5.1.0 Address rejected."

After doing some research on the error.  I found some information where I need to change the MX files with my domain provider.  Well,  I didn't know what a MX file was but I eventually figured it out.  MX files are mail exchange records that identifies a server that handles email messages for a domain.  I purchase my domains through GoDaddy.com. I eventually found a article in Google Apps Help forum that walked me through the process.  They have articles for several domain providers.  I'm providing the link to the  GoDaddy.com article, the one that helped me.  Here is the link: Configuring Your MX Records: GoDaddy.com

Hope this helps you out.
