How to change MX Records and Email Routing in cPanel?

I am wondering how to change MX Records and Email Routing in cPanel? YouStable is offering cPanel web hosting to the new and existing customer, so it should not take more than three minutes to complete the process.

First, we are going to change or add MX Records.

Second, then we move to the Email Routing settings.

Everything can be done from the cPanel.
