autodiscover        3600  CNAME   3600  TXT   "v=spf1 ~all"
_sip._tls                3600  SRV   100 1 443
_sipfederation._tls   3600  SRV   100 1 5061
sip                 3600  CNAME

  • 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.
Then, change the Email Routing setting down the bottom to "Remote Mail Exchanger".
