Your MX record needs to be a hostname (mx1.yourdomain.org for
example), not an IP address.

1) Create an A (address) record mx1.nameofyourdomain.com, which points
to the public IP address of your email.
2) Create an MX record priority 10  mx1.nameofyourdomain.com
3) Depending on how fast your DNS provider is at fulfilling your
requests, you may have to wait 24 hours.

Then run a dnsreport again.
