Help with Zone File settings for my email account

  • Posted July 17, 2014

I need to set this in my Zone File, but some fields are missing or maybe I don’t know the correct formatting. Could I get some help please?

MX Records The issue where is that either there is no field for Host or for Target

Host: @ Priority: 0 Target: weekz-net.mail.protection.outlook.com

SRV Records The issue where is that there is no field for Protocol and Service

Port: 443 Protocol: _tls Name: @ Service: _sip Priority: 100 Weight: 1 Target: sipdir.online.lync.com

Port: 5061 Protocol: _tcp Name: @ Service: _sipfederationtls Priority: 100 Weight: 1 Target: sipfed.online.lync.com

TXT Records The issue here is that when I create them, the first one (it is blank) is replaced for a ". and the second one is surrrounded by to "

Name: @ TXT Value:

Name: @ TXT Value:v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all

The host defaults to @, and the Target should be entered in the Hostname field.

Port: 443 Protocol: _tls Name: @ Service: _sip Priority: 100 Weight: 1 Target: sipdir.online.lync.com

It should be entered like this:

The same goes for the other one, see SRV record. Make sure you keep the trailing dot in the Target/Hostname field.

the first one (it is blank) is replaced for a ".

Why would you want to create a blank TXT record? I’m not sure it would serve any purpose.

and the second one is surrrounded by to "

That’s fine, it’s how it should actually be.
