What are MX records ?
 
The e- mail exchange (MX) records direct email from one domain to servers that host the accounts of domain users .
To set up Gmail with Google Apps , you need to point your MX records to Google’s email servers.
Multiple MX records can be defined for a domain , each with a different priority .
If the email cannot be delivered using the first priority register, the second register will be used and so on.
