Need More Specific DNS Specifications - migration to Office 365
I received the migration instructions for CNAmes, MX and txt records, but I am not clear on what the NAMES of these entries should be.
Here's the instruction for autodiscover nad Email Cnames:
"Create exclusive Autodiscover and Email CNames
AutoDiscover ⇒ autodiscover.outlook.com
email ⇒ email.secureserver.net"
Does this mean CNAME:AutoDiscover and DATA:autodiscover.outlook.com
and CNAME:email DATA:email.secureserver.net
...or is it CNAME:autodiscover.mydomain.com and CNAME:email.mydomain.com???
(My current CName is CNAME: mail.mydomain.com)
And does the instruction "add an MX for mydomain-com.mail.protection.outlook.com"
Mean: Add an MX with NAME: MyDomain.com and DATA:mydomain-com.mail.protection.outlook.com?
and then should the text record be NAME:mydomain.com DATA:v=spf1 etc...?

Good afternoon, MarilynMa. Welcome to the support forums.
I do apologize for the delayed response. I can certainly assist with your DNS inquiry.
There are 3 important fields for DNS records:
Name always has the domain included. For most "Names", the field is left as just the domain. That said, if it's autodiscover, it would look like:
Data: v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all
Please let me know if you need anything.
