GoDaddy Domain Email Hosted With HostGator DNS Settings

Hi all,

 

Hoping to solve my email issues. I have my domain setup with GoDaddy, website hosted by Squarespace and email hosted by HostGator. I'm trying to get my email setup, but am having issues. My settings were changed this morning by a GoDaddy chat tech, but they didn't inspire much confidence. I'd rather not wait 24-48 hours for propagation to complete only to find out that they made a mistake. 

 

Here are my current settings that they setup:

The A record should be host mail (not include your domain) as otherwise you mail.yourdomain.com.yourdomain.com

 

and the MX records should only have one and be @ and mail.yourdomain.com

 

I would set all the TTLs to custom / 600
