Question

Using Outlook.com with your own Web Domain

  • Posted August 4, 2013

There is a guide on http://www.labnol.org/internet/setup-outlook-on-custom-domain/24699/ to use your own domain on outlook.com to send and receive emails, but I don’t know how to set those settings on Digital Ocean. Can anyone help?

Have you heard of this webmail? https://www.thexyz.com/webmail/

Your domain apparently has an MX record already: <br><pre>500shops.com. 1745 IN MX 5 aac5d12cbb3f4dafbd41668a303983.msv1.invalid.</pre>Try replacing <code>aac5d12cbb3f4dafbd41668a303983.msv1.invalid.</code> with <code>aac5d12cbb3f4dafbd41668a303983.pamx1.hotmail.com.</code>—does that fix it?

Hi Kamal, I’ve tried the instructions you gave in your answer, but it still hasn’t worked for me. I have waited for more than 48 hours but still no success. I even deleted the outlook domain and did it all over again, it’s been 24 hours now but nothing yet. <br> <br>There’s a part of the instruction on that says “Mail setup (required)” and has these settings: <br> <br>DNS record type: MX <br>Host: 500shops.com <br>MX server: aac5d12cbb3f4dafbd41668a303983.pamx1.hotmail.com <br>TTL: 3600 or 1 hour <br>Priority: 10 (or High priority) <br> <br>You didn’t seem to touch on that part. Your answer details on the other parts except that part, could this be the problem? <br> <br>Could you help? <br> <br>Thanks, Clive

Awesome! Glad to hear that :]

Thanks a lot! Works like a charm.

Here are the settings required: <br>http://i.imgur.com/nrvoRnA.jpg <br>http://i.imgur.com/iYOD3i0.jpg <br> <br>But I don’t know what to enter where.
