  4. First you need to set up MX records and POP hosts on the custom DNS editor (the one Hew linked).

    MX record / CNAME information for GoDaddy is listed here.

    In the DNS editor, enter:

    MX 0
    MX 10
    CNAME mail
    CNAME pop
    CNAME smtp

    Note: MX records (first 2 lines) may not be the same as above for your account, as the documentation states "Enter your MX record information as indicated in your Email Control Center."
    You have a .COM domain, so please allow up to 8 hours for the change to complete.

    Here's how to set up POP access for another account on Gmail.
