    Hello @sruchi1

    the first thing you should check is to ensure that you're updating the MX records where DNS for the domain is hosted. You would need to know in this case if the DNS is hosted on the server (meaning your domain's nameservers are pointed to your server) or if it is hosted at the registrar (meaning you used an A record redirect to point your domain to the server.)

    If DNS is not hosted locally DNS zone file changes you make on the server will have no effect on the DNS for the domain.

    Also, keep in mind it can in some cases take up to 24 hours for DNS propagation to complete.
