Recently we have added google's name server to our public DNS query,due to some reason google name server is not able to find our MX records due to which the our mailflow has stopped ,we see the below error on google dns portal.

The messages indicate that one of your MX records is formatted incorrectly.  If you can take a screenshot of them, it will be helpful to determine whether this is actually the case.

All the MX records appear to have the priority, one space, and then the mail exchanger in the name/IP column, where the only thing should be the name/IP of the mail exchanger.  The MX priority should be somewhere else.  This could  cause the problem described.

This is how i get the option to set the MX record ,there is no option to separate the priority ans MX and if i just put the MX it does not accept.

Thank you.  I've double-checked this on a linux server, and the MX records appear to be correct.  Perhaps another expert will have some insight.

Yes sometimes it works because of the other name server which we have apart from google's, if you do the nslookup for MX specifically on google name server it won't work ,we have name server of directi also configured,may be when it hits on directi name server it works,we were adding google name server as additional backup name server,so sometimes when the query goes to google name server it does not work ,but if it goes to directi name server it works,

so it worked for you because it might have reached to the directi name server.
can you do nslookup specifically on google name server and check.

The SPF record belongs to the domain, not the spf sub domain.
If your info isn't available at Google, you still have to wait one FULL day for a refresh.

When entering SPF records, please do so after "cleaning" it all up by copying and pasting it to a clear text app like notepad. Then copy and paste in your web dns panel.
