I'm trying to create an office 365 email address with my name@company.com Below is what they are looking for - does anyone know what this is and how to get it?

Before you set up your domain with Office 365, we have to make sure that you own the domain name. To do that, you'll add a specific record to the DNS records at your DNS hosting provider. We then look for the record to confirm ownership.

They will probably provide you with a TXT record. If you can find it, just post it here and we'll get it added for you.

Sorry. I'm not quite understanding your message. I think you may have omitted something on accident. If you just need to place code in the body of the page, those steps are here: https://community.homestead.com/homes...

HI again, Mike. I need to create two CNAME records for www.salesengineservices.com. I already tried adding these myself under the advanced DNS setting and they did not stick. Can you please help? Thanks, Gary:
• pages.salesengineservices.com points to salesengineservices. mktoweb.com
• go.salesengineservices.com points to mkto-ab020015.com

Can you double check the cname records. I believe they won't save as the cnames would generally have two dots on them. Or perhaps I'm not understanding your directions.

I already added this and replied in the other thread you posted in. It can take up to 1 day to propagate, but is usually faster. You can start to try to verify at anytime, but it might take a while before it succeeds.

Thanks

I need to confirm ownership of 4mationdesign.com fro MS Office 365. They told me to enter either of the following. Can you help?

TXT record
Alias=4mationdesign.com
Destination=MS=ms49967035
TTL= 1 hour

or

MX record
Alias=4mationdesign.com
Destination=ms49967035.msv1.invalid
TTL= 1 hour

Thanks.

The TEXT record has been added as requested. It can take up to 24 hours to propagate, but you can try anytime.

Thanks

Thanks. I looked under the Advanced DNS Settings but did not see it added. Would it be there or somewhere else? Also, could it take longer than 24 hours because the MS Office 365 site is still not seeing it. Thanks.

the TXT record isn't accessible from the domain manager screen. There are actually many types of dns records but the A, Cname, and MX are generally the only ones used. Making the TXT record available is under discussion but I don't have confirmation if, or when it will be available. Until then you are welcome to post requests here.

Mike, you handled the public side of the recent email issues very well given the circumstances...

Can you please add the following to www.fdeanmorgan.com? Thanks!

Exchange Online
Type TXT Name TXT Value TTL
TXT @ v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all 1 Hour

The DNS settings for Additional Office 365 records are not configured correctly. Add the records below to the DNS settings at your domain registrar.

Additional Office 365 Records
Type Host name Points to address TTL
CNAME msoid.fdeanmorgan.com clientconfig.microsoftonline-p.net 1 Hour

Good morning, I have added the TXT record, but for the CNAME, is the host "name"? It should consist of 2 parts. The host and the points to. You have the points to, but I need to confirm the host value.

Thanks

You added the MX record, but it is a different number than you have posted here. I added the above TXT record.
