Can not update my mail dns

I am just moving my website bilpoolen.nu from one hosting company to another, but wish to keep my email at the old hosting compane (for now).

I tried to update dns, cname from
Type = CNAME, Name = mail, content = nmail4.ballou.se
to:
Type = CNAME, Name = mail.bilpoolen.nu, content = nmail4.ballou.se
Nothing happens, no message or anything, what am I doing wrong?

Email uses the MX. MX records cannot point to a CNAME, the target of an MX records has to be an A/AAAA record. What does your MX record point at? What is your domain name.

Thanks, I got it solved. My mail.bilpoolen.nu pointed to the mail server of my old hosting company already. Thanks for your quick reply though
