Post subject:  mx record and googlemail

I read a lot of threads on here but im still confused about setting up the mx record correctly for google. I have a google mail account and they say the mx record must be set up to:

1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM
10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM

Since one can only setup one mx record on Freehostia, I took the first one. However, the following php test script does not send the email as expected although it displays: "Mail sent".

Code:
<?php
$to = "someone@yahoo.com";
$subject = "Test mail";
$message = "Hello! This is a simple email message.";
$from = "myemail@gmail.com";
$headers = "From:" . $from;
mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers);
echo "Mail Sent.";
?>


Whats wrong here? The script? Or the mx record or anything else? Have I still to do something special with my google account? What about setting smtp.googlemail.com in the mx record? Thanks for any help.

Hello,

Please note that you will have to set either the "TO" or the "FROM" filed of your e-mail form to be an operational e-mail address created with your account with us, so the mail form could be operational.

If you have any other questions, please let us know.
