I set up the MX record as you recommended and finally all seems well but with one caveat.

I had to change my email clients' SMTP and IMAP hosts to my DDNS name rather than my domain name otherwise the servers weren't found.


Glad to hear things have improved.

Nothing wrong with what you're doing, however you could always set up a CNAME pointing a subdomain to the DDNS address, e.g:

mail              CNAME                [redacted].diskstation.me.

Doing that should allow you to use mail.[your_domain_name] as the SMTP/IMAP host.
