Situation:

Email MX service is on example.com BUT using google mail service. A domain (web service) are on different IP address than google mail service on VPS host and on the same domain name example.com.

host example.com

   example.com has address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx   <--- VPS server, WEB service
   example.com mail is handled by 5 alt2.aspmx.l.google.com.
   example.com mail is handled by 1 aspmx.l.google.com.
   example.com mail is handled by 5 alt1.aspmx.l.google.com.
   example.com mail is handled by 10 aspmx3.googlemail.com.
   example.com mail is handled by 10 aspmx2.googlemail.com.

host -t mx example.com

example.com mail is handled by 5 alt2.aspmx.l.google.com.
example.com mail is handled by 1 aspmx.l.google.com.
example.com mail is handled by 5 alt1.aspmx.l.google.com.
example.com mail is handled by 10 aspmx3.googlemail.com.
example.com mail is handled by 10 aspmx2.googlemail.com.

On a same domain example.com we are using MX service google mail service.

PROBLEM: On a VPS server example.com has address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx a VPS server can't send an email to another something@example.com as a same domain.

WHAT I WANT? Using mail service MX from googlemail and VPS from another IP address.

And dig -t example.com

; <<>> DiG 9.9.2-P1 <<>> example.com ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 8318 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 1

Sending mail from google service can send to ALL. Send mail from VPS server can send to ALL EXCEPT on the example.com

Hint: CentOS using Plesk service with full VPS SSH access. What is best solution for working mail service on both and that can VPS send mail service on a same domain?
