Notes:

  • The MS record shown in red is a number supplied by Microsoft as part of the verification rocess.
  • The MX record contains the domain name as a prefix, with periods replaced by hyphens.
  • SPF, Once it has been approved and active with Office 365 you will need to add in your webserver IP to the SPF record. "v=spf1 +a include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all"
Then, change the Email Routing setting down the bottom to "Remote Mail Exchanger".
