I'm an IT specialist for a small company in Indianapolis, and we want to switch our email, calendar, and cloud storage (though not hosting or DNS registration YET - one step at a time) to Google Apps for Business.

The question is, how? We're a company in full stride, and can't take three weeks off to transfer all the services. How do I/is there a way to simply transfer the email at least from GoDaddy to Google Apps? Is there a way to make sure incoming emails never touch GoDaddy's glacial servers (that's what I'd most like to make sure of)?

You need to set MX records on your server to do that.

Excellent, that is about ten times easier than I was afraid it would be. Thank you! – ilinamorato May 28 '13 at 13:30
