Changes to Additional DNS records

I recently bought a dedicated pop3 email account hosted by godaddy.com for my domain which is hosted on my plusnet account. In order to get my pop3 account working godaddy have said I need to change the following records:

MX Modifications:
MX 10 - smtp.secureserver.net
MX 50 - mailstore1.secureserver.net
Cname modifications:
Map mail.Domain.com to pop.secureserver.net
Map email.Domain.com to email.secureserver.net

Am I correct laying out the above changes to my domain's Additional DNS records as follows?

Type: MX Pri: 10 Right field: smtp.secureserver.net
Type: MX Pri: 10 Right field: mailstore1.secureserver.net
Left field: mail.domain.com Type: CNAME Right field: pop.secureserver.net
Left field: email.domain.com Type: CNAME Right field: email.secureserver.net

Cheers,
Mark

the pri on second mx record should be 20 or higher. It will try to send mail to the lowest pri first. However check that in managment tools that they don't do mail forewarding from your domain. If they do just point it at your plusnet address. No need for a pop box at godaddy at all.
