    Hi,

    Go to a command prompt and type "CMD" and press enter
    Type "NSLOOKUP" and press enter
    Type "set type=mx" press enter
    then type the domain name you require the mx records for

    See image attached.

    I "dumbed" it down for future people looking for the same answer

    P.s. You can set type+ to any of the following:

    type=X - set query type (ex. A,ANY,CNAME,MX,NS,PTR,SOA,SRV)
