Update of MX/TXT records

0 votes

Hi, in order to add a domain to Microsoft Office 365 for Business, I need to add TXT/MX records to verify that I own the domain.

I did this on Afrihost, and the website says it takes up to 10 minutes. It is now 5 hours later, and I am still not able to verify.

Microsoft lists the TXT/MX records, and does not pick up the ones I added. I tried both MX and TXT records. For both, I am unable to verify.

Does this update of MX/TXT record take longer to reflect? Or is it an issue with the hosting? Here is the records I added. 

The * represents the domain name, which I removed for security purposes.

* MX 32767 3600 ms13097764.msv1.invalid 2019-01-10 11:12:44
* TXT   3600 MS=ms13097764 2019-01-10 15:41:19

Good day

When adding a TXT record, you need to make sure that the records are accurate.

DNS changes may take up to 24hrs sometimes.

The best solution is to forward the DNS records to Afrihost hosting department and who can add the records on your behalf. support@afrihost.com
