Could you be a bit more specific about it never seeming to work? Setting the MX record should be as simple as adding the server on site5 hosting’s IP address into the MX field and assigning it a priority.

What are the exact problem you are seeing? There’s a good chance the issue is with something besides the MX record itself.
