The MX record helps you specify the incoming mail server that’ll receive your email messages. It helps users prepare for mail server failures. You could use the record to designate their backup servers, enabling SMTP servers to route emails through them when the default server fails.
Businesses relying on emails for mission-critical processes often use the MX record to instruct SMTP servers to share their email loads between their incoming servers to avoid overwhelming the primary server.
With an MX record, you can host your emails with another host while hosting your domain with your current host, meaning you can use emails with domains hosted somewhere else.
