How to verify MX records for your domain

You won’t be able to get any email until you set the MX (Mail eXchange) records for your domain. This is usually done for you, unless you decide to use a different provider for your email such as Google. Eventhough, there are instructions and online tools that will do this for you, but sometimes you just want to be the master of your domain, so here goes:
$ nslookup
> set type=mx
> mydomain.com
Server: 172.138.101.1
Address: 172.138.101.1#53
