I'm having trouble sending email through a newly created domain.  This is the first time I've edited MX records, but I need to ensure that these details are correct before I check the next area.

My domain, needs to accept emails addressed to users in this format:   user@mydomain.com

So, I've set up the MX record like this, but don't know if these details are correct:


DOMAIN DNS (A / CNAME)
-------------------------------
mydomain.com     IN A      123.123.123.123

MX RECORD
--------------
Host: mydomain.com
TTL:  86400
Type:  IN MX
Priority: 10
Target: mydomain.com

Is anything obviously wrong here??
