Error - DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004) Content for MX record must be a hostname

I am using Godaddy as my domain and email host.
I am using 000webhost as my hosting service. Cloudflare is in the middle which is providing me free SSL.
One of the problems I have at the moment is that I am not able to receive emails when sent to my email address.

GoDaddy provided me MX/ CNAME/ SVR records. When I am trying to input them, I keep getting errors.

One of the errors is this → DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004) Content for MX record must be a hostname.
Type MX
Name is @
Mail Server is MYWEBSITE-com. mail. protection. outlook. com/
Priority 0.

Am I missing something here? Please educate me!

My issue was resolved by just waiting. All the solutions given did not make any change. I did not touch the DNS since I posted the form. Now it worked!
Thank you for all of your help!
