"MX" is the short name for "Mail Exchanger" which is a type of DNS record. DNS is the key to find any service for a domain. Mail server which sends email message looks up for MX records for destination domain to find destination mail sever.
"MX" DNS record looks the following way:
# dig mx google.com
;; ANSWER SECTION:
google.com. 585 IN MX 30 alt2.aspmx.l.google.com.
google.com- destination domain name.
MX -record type.
30 - priority of mail server.
alt2.aspmx.l.google.com - mail server name.
585 IN - Service information, such as TTL. Not a part of "MX" DNS record.
