Create MX, A and PTR in Godaddy

We have registered our domain in Godaddy and the DNS server is hosted outside. We want to move the DNS back to GoDaddy.

Is there any procedure for the change ? What types of records should I add to support our email server ? Does GoDaddy has email contact that I can send out my questions ?

Thx

Just let me know where is your website is hosted and where is your mail hosted is it with same service provider or different.
If you are changing name server(NS) to godaddy ns record that  would resolve your issue of changing dns to godaddy.
For mail service you have to provide mx record to your mail service provider.
Change A record for your website hosting.

In my case, GoDaddy host the domain. We have our own email server hosting in data centre. The provider maintain the DNS for us. We want to move the DNS setting to Godday. How can I proceed the change ?

Please follow the below steps
1> Change NS record to godaddy
2> Change A record to hosting provider of data center
3> Change MX record to hosting provider of data center

If you are able to access godaddy dns panel then just reverse the chronological order as to reflect the DNS changes it would take time and meanwhile it would stop display of website and stop mail service.
But changing the order it would be already present in godaddy dns server and it would matter time to change the NS record of domain

While changing the DNS hosted in my IP address provider to Godaddy, will it affect the mail services ?  FYI, the IP will remain unchange and I still use the old IP - only change the DNS location.

Is the steps attached correct ? Do I need to specify full qualified name when creating A record ?

How to create PTR for reverse IP lookup ? Thx

Yes it will affect mail service.
What is MX record and A record saved in godaddy .
If its same then it wont affect so much. Just reduce the TTL to minimum in godaddy

In Godaddy, it would set the DNS servers to my DNS servers of my IP providers.  No DNS records are setup in Godaddy.
