MX records question

If I have a MX record for "mydomain.com"  called "mail.mydomain.com" and I have a A record under "mydomain.com" called "www.mydomain.com" I have this question. I know email addressed to "users@mydomain.com" would be handled by MX record "mail.mydomain.com" BUT would email addressed to "users@www.mydomain.com" be handled by MX record "mail.mydomain.com"?

No, not unless you specify another MX record for www.mydomain.com. Since there isn't an MX record for www, your mail server will either try to deliver the mail to the IP of www.mydomain.com or just give up and send an NDR back to you. It depends on how your email server is setup.

err...it'll depends on how the SENDER's email server is setup. If there is a chance people will send email to users@www.mydomain.com, just add an MX record pointing to mail.mydomain.com.
