How to add MX record

I will give an example of adding MX records in the DNS settings of a domain name registrar.

The MX record determines who accepts mail for the specified domain, for example, for the domain, accepts (you can call the subdomain or specify third-party email services like google, yandex, etc.):

Example MX record:

Host: @
Type: MX
Priority: 10

If there are several MX records, for example with priorities 10 and 20, then the record with the lowest priority (10) is selected first, if the server is not available, then the next record with the highest priority (20) is selected, if MX records with the same priority, then the selection is performed randomly.
