I have a strange email issue, but I'm not sure what the issues is.

My domain is registered with easily.co.uk and the details are as follows

englishgroup.co.uk      A
*.englishgroup.co.uk    A
englishgroup.co.uk      MX  easymx2.easily.co.uk. (Priority 10)
englishgroup.co.uk      MX  rhea.easily.co.uk. (Priority 10)

When i send an email to one of the mail accounts, i get a 550 error mail not hosted here. This makes sense as my server (running plesk) is hosting the email.

If i head into plesk and look under DNS management i get these

Host                            Record type    Value
*.webmail.englishgroup.co.uk.   CNAME          englishgroup.co.uk. / 24              PTR            englishgroup.co.uk.
englishgroup.co.uk.             NS             ns.englishgroup.co.uk.
englishgroup.co.uk.             A    
englishgroup.co.uk.             MX (10)        mail.englishgroup.co.uk.
ftp.englishgroup.co.uk.         CNAME          englishgroup.co.uk.
mail.englishgroup.co.uk.        A    
ns.englishgroup.co.uk.          A    
webmail.englishgroup.co.uk.     A    
www.englishgroup.co.uk.        CNAME           englishgroup.co.uk.

Do I need any other DNS records in easily to get this working? The strage thing about this is that I have a domain setup in the exactly same way, but that domain works. Every DNS record are the same, but this domain doesn't work, but the other does.

any ideas?

Get rid of the MX records and put englishgroup.co.uk as the only MX record.
