I signed up for a windows live account and was going to process of registering my domain. I tried to follow the steps from there but it seems the fields mentioned are quite different. Here’s what the instruction from windows live. I’m quite new to this and I appreciate your help. Thanks!
Mail setup (required) To set up mail and prove ownership of this domain, you must create an MX record through your domain registrar. Use the following settings:
DNS record type: MX Host: mydomain.com MX server: e5783262d14fde4b82a66955b06357.pamx1.hotmail.com TTL: 3600 or 1 hour Priority: 10 (or High priority)
Prove domain ownership (optional) If you would like to prove the ownership of domain and create users without setting up mail, you can use one of the following methods for up to 30 days. After 30 days, you will need to set up an MX record for mail routing as shown above. If your domain registrar allows you to create TXT records, use these settings:
DNS record type: TXT Host: mydomain.com Value: v=msv1 t=e5783262d14fde4b82a66955b06357
If your domain registrar allows you to create MX records, use these settings:
DNS record type: MX Host: mydomain.com Value: e5783262d14fde4b82a66955b06357.msv1.invalid Priority: Higher value than existing records, or Low priority.
Server trust (recommended) Create a TXT record to allow other mail servers to trust email originating from your domain. Also known as sender ID configuration, this setting will help prevent your mail from being marked as junk mail. Use the following settings:
DNS record type: TXT Host: mydomain.com Value: v=spf1 include:hotmail.com ~all TTL: 3600 or 1 hour (if requested)
Messenger configuration (recommended) To federate Messenger with other compatible networks, you need to create the following SRV record in DNS.
DNS record type: SRV Service: _sipfederationtls._tcp.mydomain.com Protocol: _tcp Domain Name: mydomain.com Priority: 10 (or High priority) Weight: 2 Port: 5061 Target: federation.messenger.msn.com
