How to setup the mx record?

Hi! I bought an office365 mail account on godaddy but have a problem with mx. GoDaddy gaves me 3 fields for mx record: host, priority and destination but on digitalocean i have only 2 fields: the hostname (@) and the priority (0). When i try to verify if everything is ok, godaddy says that i have a problem with my mx record so i have to try again. What i have to do? Is the destination field indispensable? Where i have to put it?

I think DO assumes @ as host. (@ = yourdomain.com). So you just need to enter your priority and destination.
