If you would like to use Outlook.com to host your email, please follow these steps:

 

  1. Get your email account setup with Outlook.com - follow their support instructions on how to do this.
  2. DNS Settings - Once your Outlook.com account is setup we will need the following information to enter into our DNS servers so that your email will be handled by Outlook.com:
    1. DNS MX Record or Records required by Outlook.com
    2. Any other DNS records that Outlook.com requires
    3. Send these DNS records to us via a support Ticket
  3.

    SMTP Server Address
    SMTP Port Number
    Email Address your website will use to send email messages
