Hostgator & MX Records

Hey All,


I really hope someone can help me here.


My domain name server is sitting with godaddy.  I purchased a business pack with hostgator and host a number of different sites there.


When i purchased my business pack with hostgator, the provided me with a static IP.  When i set up my A records, i initially pointed them to this dedicate IP and was going crazy why i was not seeing anything.  Finally I looked in my cPanel and saw I had a shared IP as well. 

So I changed the A records to point to this IP and everything worked.


Now I am trying to setup my emails and it is just not working. 

Does anyone have experience working with hostgator and godaddy that can tell me where i should point my MX records to ?
