mail MX record not working

Hello.

 

I'm using a domain name (virtualsky.me) that I have registered with Godaddy. I set it the default NS, i.e. ns65.domaincontrol.com and ns66.domaincontrol.com.

 

This is the records setting:

NS@ns65.domaincontrol.com1 Hour 
NS@ns66.domaincontrol.com1 Hour

 

However, mail.virtualsky.me is not working:

 

$ nslookup -debug mail.virtualsky.me

Server: 8.8.8.8

Address: 8.8.8.8#53

The table did not get correctly pasted in the previous post. This is the actual NS settings:
