You can use remote mail servers on your hosting account if you use our name servers (DNS).
It is essential to know where you manage the DNS zone of the domain you want to use in order to properly change the MX records.
In this article, we'll use Google MX to walk you through the process. Google uses multiple mail servers in case one of their servers is down or under maintenance.
The sending server determines which mail server to contact first based on its priority, the lower the priority number the higher the priority. If the first server contacted is unavailable, it will try the next servers according to the priority. In this case, the highest priority is on ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM (1), then it will contact the alternative servers with priority 5 and then those with priority 10.
