Here are the values to use in your domain's DNS settings to configure MX records for Gmail with G Suite. Each record points to a Google mail server. Note important details below about setting mail server Priorities.
You enter these values at your domain host, not in your Google Admin console.
Note: Some domain hosts use different labels for the name and value fields, and some hosts also require a trailing period at the end of the server name.
For example: ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
Make sure you follow the specific instructions for your domain host when entering these record values.
|Name/Host/Alias||Time to Live (TTL*)||Record Type||Priority||Value/Answer/Destination|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||1||ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||5||ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||5||ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||10||ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||10||ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.|
* The TTL is the number of seconds before subsequent changes to the MX record go into effect. Once the MX records are configured correctly, we recommend changing the TTL value from 3600 to 86400, which tells servers across the Internet to check every 24 hours for updates to the MX record instead of every hour.

Below is an example of this entered with SaskTech Servers DNS Manager
The Priority column shows the relative priorities of the Google mail servers. Mail is delivered to the server with the highest priority first. If for some reason that server isn't available, mail is delivered to the server with the next highest priority, and so on through all your the servers. Priority values don't have to be exactly like those shown in the table. And in fact, different domain hosts have different systems for setting MX record priority.
Regardless of your domain host's system for indicating priority, ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. must be the top priority record.
If your domain host assigns priorities using numbers, choose the lowest number (highest priority) for ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM., as shown in the table above. If your host uses some other method for assigning priority, follow that method to designate ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. as the primary server. If your host allows only one MX record or doesn't allow ranking, enter ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. as the only MX record.
Domain verification with an MX record
You can also verify your domain for G Suite with an MX record. The G Suite Setup Wizard provides a unique MX record, with a priority of 15, for verification. This record is only available from the Setup Wizard that is encountered right after you sign up for G Suite.
