You can't have a CNAME and an MX record for "mail", once you have a
CNAME you may have nothing else for that name. Should be:
www IN CNAME @
mail IN CNAME @
@ IN A x.x.x.x
@ IN MX 10 @
"mail" and "www" will adopt the MX record of "@" by virtue of the
CNAME. Mail send to any of the three names will go to "x.x.x.x". This
is ideal in most situations. Some RFC's suggest your domain (@)
should accept mail.
