Setting up MX (Mail Exchange) records is vital for directing email traffic to the valid email servers for a domain. MX records are an essential part of configuring email services.
Here are the simple steps to set up MX records:
Log in to the dashboard or control panel given by your domain registrar or DNS hosting company. Here is where you can customise your DNS records.
Find the section or option for managing DNS records. It might be marked as “DNS Management,” “DNS Settings,” “Domain Management,” or something similar.
For example, if you want to use Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) for your domain’s email, you would typically create MX records like these:
|Blank or @||1||ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
|Blank or @||5||ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
|Blank or @||5||ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
|Blank or @||10||ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
|Blank or @||10||ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
The priority values determine the order in which email servers are tried. You can have multiple MX records for redundancy.
It may take some time for DNS changes to propagate across the internet. This propagation period can vary but typically takes a few to 48 hours.
