I am hoping this page will help people who want to use Sendgrid and Google Workspace.
I have a business email firstname.lastname@example.org which I purchased from Google Workspace because I like to use Gmail to access my emails. Set up for this is found in my Google Admin Console.
To send emails out, I would like to use Sendgrid.
It seems that this combination of Sendgrid and Google Workspace is not common and I have not been able to find a solution on how to set up the DNS for these two services. I am surprised it is not common because Sendgrid is the cheapest solution for sending lots of emails and Gmail is the cheapest for creating a business email.
Anyway, I will be paying experts to try and help and hope to find a solution. Please post any thoughts you like which may help us.
Hi there @darren.james7518,
You just need to have it setup in your Registar’s DNS, not Google Workspace.
I had done this but I still got errors. This post is a follow on from a previous post listing the issues I have been facing.
Here I am in the same situation. Anyone know the solution to this? I would guess that your MX records can only point to either Sendgrid or Google… so is it possible to have both a Google Workspace email account and also send email using SendGrid?
I paid someone to get this sorted for me and all seems to be working. I find Google is a total mess, I mean I have login info for the following;
Google Workspace Business Starter
No wonder it get’s confusing, I don’t know what relates to what, why can’t Google have one single console? Anyway, feel free to ask me to show you screen shots of anything, I would love to say “this is how it’s done” but I wouldn’t know where to look or what to show you so please tell me what you need.
For Google Workspace, you need to input MX records. For Sendgrid they’re CNAME and TXT records.
This is for Google Workspace, your Google Accounts under your custom domain.
These are for the Google Cloud Console. For access to oauth, APIs, and Google Cloud services.
This is the solution. They are totally compatible as they use different DNS records types.
