DNS Incorrect? Email stopped working when moved domain

  1. About a month ago, I moved my domain name from a StartLogic site to WordPress. I thought I had updated the DNS correctly, but apparently I did not.
    This is what I currently have in the custom DNS box:
    MX 30 mx.goldenmonkeyentertainment.com.

    I contacted StartLogic and they told me to input this information into my DNS:
    Priority Host Points To:
    30 @ mx.goldenmonkeyentertainment.com
    30 * mx.goldenmonkeyentertainment.com

    I am not sure how to put this into the custom DNS box. What format should I put this in to make my email work again?

    Thank you for any help in advance.

    The blog I need help with is goldenmonkeyentertainment.com.

  2. Hi there, I don't see any information in your custom DNS area at the moment - did you remove it? The custom DNS

    https://goldenmonkeyentertainment.wordpress.com/wp-admin/paid-upgrades.php?page=domains&action=dnsedit&domain=goldenmonkeyentertainment.com

    The correct format for MX records is:

    MX 10 MAIL1.EXAMPLE.COM.

    So this may be correct:

    MX 30 mx.goldenmonkeyentertainment.com.

    In addition to an MX record most email hosts require a second DNS record, often an A record, which points to an IP address. Would you be able to ask your host if there are any other records required beyond the MX record, such as an A record?
