I configured the google apps mx records under the dns menu. However, when I do a mxlookup i cant see any records associated with my domain. Also I cannot receive any e-mails.

I am waiting for them to be active but I have been waiting more than a day.

Here are my dns records,

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I wanna know if the slow to update DNS problems were already solved, or how many hours will it take to get the MX working, I’m in charge of company email and I wanna migrate to digital ocean, thanks.

Looking at the screenshot provided, it looks like your records are set correctly. The hadn’t yet been pushed live. DigitalOcean was experiencing an issue affecting the DNS system where records were slow to update. This should be resolved now.
