Default Email Server.

I have an email server setup & we are changing our DNS provider. With our old provider all I had to do was give them our "Fully Qualified Domain Name" & IP address. The new company makes us do everything ourselves & won't tell me how to setup DNS correctly to be able send and receive emails. Basically all they do is say, "Here is where you change it, have at it". They say they do not support the actual setup, only the hosting.... Can anyone help? for the MX record I just need to point it to our FQDN with a priority of 0 correct? (we only have one server.) The PTR and rDNS records are setup by my isp right? And if I'm not mistaken the A record points to our IP..... am i correct in this? do the name servers need changed to the new provider or to i point that to the anme servers the actual server uses? Is there anything i have wrong or am missing? I also would like to know about CNAME & SPF Records if anyone has any comments or links or anything, any help would be greatly appreciated.
