Hmmm... try putting a full stop on the end of the entry you are putting in.

If you are pointing your MX to a CNAME record you are doing it wrong.

MX should always be pointing to an A record.

*chuckle* have had similar head-scratchers in the past with different DNS control panels.

I've fallen into this trap too.

 

It actually say on the page: Names that are fully-qualified such as www.yourname.co.nz. or ghs.google.com. should have a trailing dot

 

But you often don't see that when your having problems laughing
