For all domains managed by SMS we have updated the mx records and you don’t need to do anything else.

For any domains which are managed externally you will need to update and replace your existing MX records with those below. Once updated it may take several hours for the new records to update across the globe

  • ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. Priority 5
  • ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. Priority 10
  • ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. Priority 10

If you are unsure how to check your MX records, or require further help please contact our Support team on 01925 818252 or email from an email address unaffected by these issues (eg a Gmail account).
