Windows Live Custom Domains

I'm in the process of re-juvinating my webspace, but I'd like to use Windows Live Custom Domains to manage my webmail. But, how can I change my MX records accordingly?

Re: Windows Live Custom Domains

Who's your domain hosted with? Us?Huh
If it is, then you need to...

  • Login to our website here (assuming you have a PlusNet account)
  • Click /Configure/ next to the domain you wish to change the MX records of.
  • Select the /Other/ radio button under 'Mail Settings'
  • Click /Continue/
  • Click /Configure/ next to the domain again
  • Click /Configure additional DNS records/
  • Add the new MX records and remove the old ones as required

If your domain is hosted elsewhere then you will need to speak to your domain registrar or registering agent in order to make the change.
