Re: DNS MX settings

In other words:

mywebsite.se
A, 185.133.206.78, 0, 3600

www.mywebsite.se
A, 185.133.206.78, 0, 3600

mail.mywebsite.se
A, mypublicip, 0, 120


Seems like you had the answer all along. Maybe i don't understand the question?

Sorry, i overlooked that you host your website somewhere else.

A:mail.mywebsite.se should point to your hmailserver IP.

Change MX entry on mywebsite.se so it points to A:mail.mywebsite.se

Re: DNS MX settings

Add mx record to mywebsite.se and point it to A:mail.mywebsite.se OR A:mywebsite.se

Both A records (A:mail.mywebsite.se and A:mywebsite.se) point to your public IP so either will work.
