Problem with MX DNS Propagation, domain from godaddy

August 29, 2014 7.3k views

I have the domain registered at godaddy, dns are pointing to the digitalocean servers.
On digitalocean, the dns settings are have the google MX records but I can not receive emails in gmail.

My conf on digitalocean:

My conf on godaddy:
https://www.diigo.com/item/image/4x0jc/06c3

What is wrong?

Thx!

  • How long ago did you add those MX records? Your DigitalOcean DNS settings look right, but your domain isn’t returning any MX records when queried at the moment.

    $ dig -t mx paginawebrural.com
    
  • The records are showing up now, so it should work:

Hello,

From what I can tell everything looks correct on the DigitalOcean & GoDaddy side.

Have you setup a GMAIL EMAIL HOSTING ACCOUNT?

Unless I am missing something they look good to me.

How long ago did you make this change? It can take a few hours to update.

About 6 hours ago, is now working, sorry.
TTL is 30min, i was thinking it would take less from 6h.
Thanks, solved!
