How to configure custom domain with FastMail

I am using FastMail since the beginning of this year and I couldn't be more satisfied. Service is fast, reliable and I do not have to run the mail server myself. I will jot down Gandi DNS settings for further reference.

FastMail DNS configuration page (reference).

Equivalent Gandi DNS configuration (expert mode/BIND version 9).

* 10800 IN MX 10 in1-smtp.messagingengine.com.
* 10800 IN MX 20 in2-smtp.messagingengine.com.

@ 10800 IN MX 10 in1-smtp.messagingengine.com.
@ 10800 IN MX 20 in2-smtp.messagingengine.com.

_client._smtp 10800 IN SRV 1 1 1 sleeplessbeastie.eu.

_submission._tcp 10800 IN SRV 0 1 587 mail.messagingengine.com.

_carddavs._tcp 10800 IN SRV 0 1 443 carddav.messagingengine.com.

@ 10800 IN TXT "v=spf1 include:spf.messagingengine.com ?all"
mesmtp._domainkey 10800 IN TXT "v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQC4YBuGB6cAlBK/rGwhGhaSupAUQffnUqU/TMUNTO+WyOV5QbVg0e+YrPfThZwnPEQv3HOOIDpmVbPwGZZqOSM3/j3p90KQW2VVMJky86BFGmRg8D8GFIuVMqFluQ6Bg5IFhQZDh1LrowpsuyCZdocc97+eKyWYvfzYiuHPKqhofQIDAQAB"
_adsp._domainkey 10800 IN TXT "dkim=unknown"

This is the way I have configured it.
