GoDaddy dns setting for home server

Could someone check the DNS settings that I'm using to point to a set (web, ftp, mail) of servers I'm using for testing? I'm especially wondering about the mail settings.
 
; A Records
@ 600 IN A xx.xx.xx.xx
 
; CNAME Records
www 3600 IN CNAME @
ftp 3600 IN CNAME @
pop 3600 IN CNAME mail.myhomedomain.com
smtp 3600 IN CNAME mail.myhomedomain.com
mail 3600 IN CNAME mail.myhomedomain.com
 
; MX Records
@ 3600 IN MX 10 mail.myhomedomain.com
 
; NS Records
@ 3600 IN NSns45.domaincontrol.com
@ 3600 IN NSns46.domaincontrol.com

you just need to take out pop and smtp unless you have it setup as pop.myhomedomain.com and smtp.myhomedomain.com and if you have your pop/smtp as mail.myhomedomain.com just leave it as is.

What exactly are you asking? Nothing looks wrong. If you aren't running particular services some records might be unnecessary. But it's not going to hurt anything or be any more or less secure with them there.

Thanks for the reply, I've never done these before.

I wanted confirmation I wasn't forgetting something obvious or made some obvious mistake.
