Office365 (well email) for students
I am trying my best to get Live@edu working before converting to office365 (well the email side) to work so that students can have their own school email addresses.
I have proved i own my domain by speaking to the ISP and asking them to create the TXT file Students and insert the random characters on my domain so i now have students.domain.co.uk. I have also asked them to create 2 CNAME entries webmail.students and mail.students to point to outlook.com/students.domain.co.uk. I also have the TXT file on my internal DNS servers. Does that need to be there?
This works from the outside world but i cannot get it to work inside the domain. How can i get round this? I have tried adding a CNAME (webmail.students) to my forward lookup zone to domain.co.uk in my local internal domain servers at work, but no joy.
Also, i can send emails from the administrator account to my work email but i cannot send any emails to students.domain.co.uk. Do i need to speak to my ISP again and ask them to create a MX record for students.domain.co.uk as i don't have a record for this.
