Frequently Asked Questions

G Suite Configuration

Does your dedicated representative need to come to our company in person when we use your setup and activation service?

It isn’t necessary. All implementation procedures can be done remotely.
We will send an email after completion of setup to inform your administrator of the activation of service and to provide an instruction manual.

What information do you need for implementing G Suite?

Please provide the setup site address and domain administrator’s account and password for your domain hosting. You will also need to complete our user account application form.

How long does it take to migrate to/implement G Suite?

If you choose to use G Suite implementation service provided by TS Cloud, we will be able to complete the implementation process within 3 working days.
As the time for DNS to take effect cannot be manually estimated, you may be able to officially start using the new service within 1 day if DNS record becomes effective immediately.

Migration Service

If the company already has a mail server, can more than two mail servers be used?

Yes. However, because each host does not necessarily provide forwarding functions, if you have the need, you can refer to the existing Existing Email System+G Suite or contact our specialists for more information.

In the process of switching the mail server, will email messages be lost? Will the mails sent by the customer disappear?

During the migration process, an email may be sent to G Suite or the old host. Therefore, we recommend using software recipients such as Outlook. When the migration is completed, please save the mails on the old host before making POP3 or IMAP changes.

Can I transfer the mails from the existing mail server to G Suite? how to proceed?

Depending on the mail server your company is using, different environments will have different migration best practices. You can refer to this article for instructions on how to migrate your mail to G Suite.

Existing Email System+G Suite

How is the migration done?

First of all, we will have to configure routing, gateway, and filtering settings from G Suite and then enable email forwarding from the current mail server. This means that the whole process requires settings configured on both sides. We will assist you with all the G Suite side of settings. You can choose to let us help you with the configuration of your current email system if it is okay to grant us the permission to log in to your system; otherwise we can also work with your outsourced vendor to have this completed.

Is there a minimum number of accounts requirement for this Email Co-Exist Program?

Since email coexistence requires several settings to be done on both G Suite and the current mail server, it is best for companies of 20-30 people with a minimum of 10 G Suite licenses and the one-time fee of the configuration service is around RM2,680. If your company is under 20 strong, we recommend a complete changeover to G Suite. (For complete changeover, the configuration service fee is RM50/user.)

We have staff who travels to China frequently, will that be a problem?

For accessing G Suite in China, it is best to connect through a MPLS solution or through international roaming. If there’s a limited budget, SD-WAN is a relatively affordable option. There will be no problem sending and receiving emails to and from China when accessing G Suite in other places in the world. However, when it comes to using G Suite in China, the accessibility of G Suite depends on the government regulation. If your company requires a stable email service for long-term use, think twice about whether to use G Suite or not.
