namecheap dns with hotmail or outlook domain

6 Oct
  1. Select “All host records” in right hand menu
  2. Select “User (Mail Server’s Host Name Required)”
  3. Click “Save” so new input boxes come up
  4. in “HOST NAME” enter “@” <— this is the real trick
  5. Add the Outlook “MAILSERVER HOST NAME” to be something like bskdjfksjdfxxxxx.pamx1.hotmail.com.
  6. Set “MX PREF” to “10”
  7. Set “TTL” to 3600

The real trick is knowing the “HOST NAME” should be “@”. 

In reality MX records shouldn’t need host names… confusing
