Apply my Domain name on S-Drive to...
On outlook.com premium setup: I have entered my domain on my S-Drive e.g. MyDomain.com
I need help on the Coffee Cup side on how to accomplish this.
Outlook Instructions are:
Add an MX record to your DNS settings
In order to prove that you’re the legal owner of your domain, we need you to add an MX record to your domain’s DNS settings.
Step 1. Sign into your domain registrar
Sign in at the registrars website with the username (usually your domain name) and password you used to sign up for that service.
Step 2. Navigate to the DNS settings for MyDomain.com
Step 3. Create a new MX record
' end Outlook
In CoffeeCup - I am in the Manage Your Domains
Then, Manage DNS Settings
In the DNS Settings I see the www.MyDomain.com The TYPE is CNAME for Address MyDomain.com
The Type has a pull down list box that includes CNAME and MX
At this point, I don't want to break anything!
How do I create a new MX record?
E.G. Do I add a new line of MyDomain.com and set the type to MX?
FYI note on another cc post:
I had to choose "STARTTLS" for the "Connection Security" drop down. I had been choosing SSL/TLS which seems to have been the problem.
The 50 i googled, is suppose to deliver the the server.
No idea what I am doing now.
Now the Outlook setup Step 3 has a Creae a New Txt record - Since CC has an interface, I don't know if this was setup as part of the interface.
Result after Verify
Sorry - we could not verify the TXT record that was added. The TXT record for your domain needs to be set to MS=ms1374776575. If you recently updated the TXT record then give it a couple of minutes and try again.
Will this work for the S-Drive?
Now you need to “verify” your domain name. The easiest way in my opinion, is to “insert an HTML tag into your site’s home page” — easier than it sounds, promise. ???? To do this, you need to copy a provided code into your website’s <head> section. Many WordPress themes, such as Headway and Genesis, have a space for this (in Headway, it’s under Headway>>Options >>Scripts/Analytics>>Header Scripts). If you can’t find it, then there’s a plugin you can install here that will provide an easy-to-edit <head> section. Then, just copy the code that Google provides in that section.
I had already added the copy/past of the text in the same place you indicated.
This upload file is what MS Outlook Professional sent.
it didn't work. Tried just the line of MS=msxxcodexxx
That doesn't work either
Sorry - we could not verify the TXT record that was added. The TXT record for your domain needs to be set to MS=ms13xxxxx. If you recently updated the TXT record then give it a couple of minutes and try again.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
