MX Changes taking several days


#1

Help: MX changes taking 3 days or more? I could not find an answer to here, so I’m asking.
So why would it take 3 days for my GoogleSuite MX records to take 3 days so far to NOT propagate? Hopefully Murphy’s Law now operates and they do propagate.
My life is on hold to this happens…
Is it typical for a MX record to take 3 days?
I called Google 3 days ago and they inspected them here in CF (via my screen share) so I know they are correct.

Hi Jason,

Sorry to hear you are having trouble here. It appears the records are formatted incorrectly. The “name” field for your Mx records should be @ or “studentsuccesstutor.com” and the value should be alt1.aspmx.l.google.com or similar.

  1. In the DNS Records section, select MX from the Type drop-down list.
  2. Enter @ in the Name field.
  3. Click the Click to configure field.
  4. In the Server field, enter ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
  5. In the Priority field, enter the priority value 1.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Click Add Record.
    Repeat steps 1–7 and enter the remaining MX server address records and priority values from the table above.
