How to check if I have configured DNS records properly?

After creating MX and TXT records (at your DNS provider), you can use online DNS query tools such as Google Admin Toolbox: Dig to check if you have configured the DNS records properly.

To check the two MX records, go to Google Admin Toolbox: Dig: MX, and type in your domain. If they have been set up properly and propagated, you should see the values as shown in the screenshot bellow.

Note: It may take a minute or as long as several hours for DNS changes to propagate ("show up") in the online DNS query tools.
