I was just wondering if I should use mail.mydomain.com too.

The dyndns client in the 04x series is compliant with the dyndns requirements and will not let a domain expire due to lack of an update or get you marked for abuse due to to many updates. You do however have to enable a cron job for dyndns to accomplish this with a semi-static or static IP. Then it is completely automatic with no manual updates needed.Dyndns will disable static accounts UNLESS they are updated within:
not less than 26 days, and
not more than 30 days.
And they mean it; on their forum are several comments from customers who have been 'caught out' by this. To be fair, they also give examples of dyn DNS clients which can be set for 'periodic' updates; I have not (yet) checked whether the FREESCO client can do this. (It may not matter, anyway; we could run the client they recommend on one of our Linux machines behind FREESCO, and thus keep dyndns happy.)

Indeed, they seem to suggest the MX record can be blank (though I have also seen comment that many organisations will - wrongly - reject mail from such domains).
