MX and CNAME record problems

    I want my email to go to Godaddy's email servers.

    So, I setup:

    mail.mydomain.com. CNAME pop.secureserver.net.

    mail.mydomain.com. MX (50) mailstore1.secureserver.net.

    mail.mydomain.com. MX (10) smtp.secureserver.net.

    So why when I try to send email to the domain, do I get this error:

    xx.yy.zz.xx does not like recipient.
    (where xx.yy.zz.xx is my server's IP address)

    Shouldn't the email be forwarded to the server in the MX record? But my server is trying to resolve the email address and sending back the error - why?
