    Office 365 MX records

    We're deploying Office 365 over the next few months, and have just tried to verify our domain in the Microsoft portal. The portal is telling us the MX record does not exist, despite us having input it, and then verified with the ISP that it exists.

    has anyone else come across a similar issue?

    If you type
    nslookup
    set q=mx
    domainname.com

    What is returned?

    Also do domainname.com 8.8.8.8


    It could be the ISP has not put the trailing . on the record which means it will try and tag your domain to the end. i.e domain.microsoft.online.mx.record.yourdomain.com etc

    The results returned are showing correct to both queries. It may be just propogation taking some time, but I thought it was worth asking
