Default ISPConfig 3 MX record


I have a server with let's say the name example.com

I have created a DNS record after adding the site in ISPConfig 3 that looks like this:

A ns1 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
A www xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
A mail xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
A ns2 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
A example.com xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
MX example.com mail.example.com
ns ns1 ns1.example.com
ns ns2 ns2.example.com

my hosts looks like this:

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ns1.example.com example
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ns2.example.com example
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx example.com example example.com example

everything works ok except the e-mail. I cannot recieve e-mails but i can send them ok.

When i use pingability.com it tells me that there is no MX and/or A record for example.com defined. Do you guys know why? Did i miss something in the configuration of the DNS in ISPConfig?

One more thing if I put the MX record like this: MX <nothinghere> example.com it shows me that now there is an MX record but it looks like this
