Learn what are the MX records for Google Workspace Email and how to add them to your domain

Updated this week

MX (Mail Exchange) records are like postal addresses for emails. Their purpose is to tell email servers where to deliver emails for a domain, helping to ensure that emails reach the correct destination.

If you use Google Workspace email with your domain, the following MX records should be present in your domain's DNS zone.

If you signed up to Google Workspace before April 2023:

Priority

Host

Value (Mail server)

TTL

ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM

You should only have the values for your active email service added to your domain. If you encounter any other values, delete them, making sure to leave only those for Google Workspace.

DNS records should be set up where your domain is pointing by nameservers:

After making any changes to your domain's DNS zone, DNS propagation starts; give it some time to complete, and your email service will be up and running smoothly.
