Set up email forwarding with custom name servers

Add the following MX records at your DNS host, if you're using custom name servers and want to use Google Domains' email forwarding.

Name/Host/Alias Type Time-to-live (TTL) Priority Value/Answer/Destination
Blank or @ MX 1H 5 gmr-smtp-in.l.google.com
Blank or @ MX 1H 10 alt1.gmr-smtp-in.l.google.com
Blank or @ MX 1H 20 alt2.gmr-smtp-in.l.google.com
Blank or @ MX 1H 30 alt3.gmr-smtp-in.l.google.com
Blank or @ MX 1H 40 alt4.gmr-smtp-in.l.google.com

 

Tip: In Google Domains and some other DNS providers, you enter the priority in the same field as the destination, separated by a space. For example: 5 gmr-smtp-in.l.google.com.

After you add the MX records above at your DNS host, complete your email forwarding set up.
