Thanks for your help
receiving mails depends on the MX record on your domain which is the final recipient of the mails. Try run a test of your domain at http://www.dnsreport.com and see it returns any error on your MX record.
With regards to the hostname A record for your WHM, you may add a the A record in the WHM > DNS Functions > Add a A host entry for your hostname
