The DNS MX records are a DNS records that sends the email to the proper mail server or email provider.

Performance-wise, it's a best practice to setup up multiple MX records to make sure the mail service is available even when one mail server is down. In case of downtime, the MX record with the second-lowest value will be selected.

Example MX record

MX has a record format. MX is the domain name of the record, MX is a type of record, and MX is a type MX. Time for existence (live time) is the time in seconds. The example is 1 hour. This means that if a record was updated, it will take an hour to update it. The lower the value the higher the priority of the records, the lower the number of requests the server must handle for this domain. mail.exampledomain.com is the site's address that should handle the message on the record.
