Confused with MX record setup for email

I have created ras@driptacarta.com email. need to setup MX record to receive email but I'm confused can you please instruct me specifically to ras@driptacarta.com, the host is mx.xtreemhost.com.

I have also entered following in DNS management

mxmx.xtreemhost.comsmtp.secureserver.net (Priority: 1)1/2 Hour

will this make receive emails to ras@driptacarta.com?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Nannigalaxy, thanks for posting.

Just to be clear, you are not using our email services for this email address/domain?
If your email provider gave you the MX record mx.xtreemhost.com to use, your DNS record should look something like this:

 

Type Host Points To TTL
mx @ mx.xtreemhost.com 1/2 Hour
