Hosted Mail Setup DNS Records

Setting up Office 365 Business Premium through GoDaddy’s Hosted Mail Setup requires some DNS records to be updated.  The same applies to Google Apps for Work or whatever email host you plan to use.  Whatever hosted email provider you choose, it’s best for most businesses to keep the registrar and DNS through the same provider.  We put together the DNS records that are required to make Office 365 Business Premium email work.

NOTE:  Please save your new DNS settings in GoDaddy.  Anyone using GoDaddy for the first time will miss important option and end up waiting for email that will never come.  This information is important if you are DNS is with GoDaddy but the email hosting is with another provider such as Rackspace.
