The MX records should be entered as follows:

Note: If you already have MX records listed in your Squarespace account, you will need to remove them all and replace them with the Hushmail MX records listed above.

Once this process is complete, give the system half an hour to an hour as it may take time to propagate the changes across the web.

You can check your MX records for your domain to see if they are set by using a third party MX checking tool like MX Toolbox
