Once, i had that configured for my domain. For this domain, i had web server
and mail server on different machines. In time, mails from the internet were
going to my web server totally ignoring my MX records.
Is there any solution for this problem?

No. You can't add a CNAME record for domain.com because it
almost certainly already has an SOA record and at least two NS

Then you have to ask yourself why domain.com is pointing to that
address, and whether it's more important to allow your visitors to
omit the "www" in your URL.
