    Remove the CNAME (Alias) "mail"

    Make an A record (Host) entry "mail" and point it to your original IP

    Make a single MX (Mail Exchange) entry that has 0 priority, "@" as the Host, and "" under "Points to"

    Remove any other MX entries

    Again, for FTP - remove the CNAME entry for ftp and create a new A record for ftp pointing to your original IP address of hte site
