Hello,

I'm hoping to get support helping my client set up GoDaddys Office 365 email. I set up what I could - (external email servers, txt records) but am having trouble with the SRV. I know I'm supposed to create a subdomain but not sure what subdomain.

Here's GoDaddy's instructions. Log on to your hosting provider or third-party domain name system manager (usually the same place you bought your domain) Locate the CNAMEs and set the following:

Name: autodiscover
Target: autodiscover.outlook.com
Name: sip
Target: sipdir.online.lync.com
Name: lyncdiscover
Target: webdir.online.lync.com
Name: email
Target: email.secureserver.net
Name: msoid
Target: clientconfig.microsoftonline-p.net
Locate the MX and set the following:
Host: @
Priority: 0 Target: altitudeeventrentals-com.mail.protection.outlook.com
Locate the SRV and set the following:
Port:
Protocol:   Name:   Service:    Priority:   Weight: Target:
443 _tls    @   _sip    0   0   sipdir.online.lync.com
Port:
Protocol:   Name:   Service:    Priority:   Weight: Target:
5061    _tcp    @   _sipfederationtls   0   0   sipfed.online.lync.com
Locate the TXT and set the following:
Name: @     TXT Value: MS=ms31257763
Name: @     TXT Value: v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all

Please advise,

thanks, -Jeff

Okay, they are asking you to create a few things here. We have a great guide here:

http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/domains.html#managing-dns-records-with-the-control-panel

But basically all the 'Name' fields are subdomains you need to create, for example:

Name: autodiscover Target: autodiscover.outlook.com

You'd create a domain like autodiscover.yourdomain.com that has a CNAME directed at autodiscover.outlook.com

Then work your way through the list, citing the guide.

Hope this helps.

Ok, thanks. I've set up the subdomains and cnames.

I've even managed to figure out the SRV records with _sip._tls.example.com etc. However, it won't let me put a "0" for priority like Godaddy requests. It gives me the error "Ensure this value is greater than or equal to 1"

thoughts? thanks in advance

Use a priority of 1. GoDaddy is telling you to use the same priority on every record anyway, so it doesn't really matter what you use as long as they're all the same.
