We are trying to configure mx records for our domain,, to use gmail. The domain is registered elsewhere but dns appears to be setup correctly to forward to inmotion where the domain is hosted. It also looks like the mx records are setup correctly at inmotion. I am not looking for the solution where we create email accounts at inmotion and forward them to other gmail accounts. When I try to send email to one of the accounts I receive a rejection notice with this info: "Technical details of temporary failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain by [].
The error that the other server returned was:
451 Temporary local problem - please try later"

Thanks for help!

Thank you for your darryl2b2d !

Make sure you remove the 0 priority MX record from your MX entry in cPanel. I still see it there. Please see the following. 14400 IN MX 0

Once you remove that you should see it start working.

Best Regards,
