Gmail MX | Type: OtherG Suite MX setup (Generic)

If you can’t find instructions for your domain host, use these general steps.

Note: If people already have email with your domain (such as user@yourdomain.com), create their user accounts in the Google Admin console before you set up your MX records. That way, they’ll continue to receive email.

  1. Sign in to your domain’s account at your domain host.

    Need help? Contact your domain host’s Support team. Domain hosts are experts with MX records, and setup is a common task.

  2. Go to the section where you can update your domain’s MX records. It might be called something like “DNS Management,” “Mail Settings,” or “Advanced Settings.”
  3. Delete any existing MX records.
    If you can’t delete the existing records, change their priority number to 20 or higher.
  4. Add new MX records for the Google mail servers.
    If your domain host limits the number of MX records, just add the first 2 records in this table.
