Outllook.com MX record

March 21, 2014 5.5k views
I not able to get the outllook.com MX setting to validate, can you please advise how do I get the setting below set on my website.io domain? Many thanks Pete 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: website.io MX server: 5ae5434eabd2b44cbba2e6541e679b.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: website.io Value: v=msv1 t=5ae5434eabd2b44cbba2e6541e679b If your domain registrar allows you to create MX records, use these settings: DNS record type: MX Host: website.io Value: 5ae5434eabd2b44cbba2e6541e679b.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: website.io 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.website.io Protocol: _tcp Domain Name: website.io Priority: 10 (or High priority) Weight: 2 Port: 5061 Target: federation.messenger.msn.com
