Setup My Domain Email In Office 365

To set up your email address in Office 365 using your domain name hosted in the Hespia control panel, follow these step-by-step instructions:

  1. Sign in to your Office 365 account: Go to the Office 365 sign-in page (https://www.office.com) and enter your username and password.
  2. Access the Admin Center: Once you’re logged in, click on the Admin app to access the Admin Center.
  3. Verify your domain ownership: In the Admin Center, go to the Setup section and select “Domains.” Click on the “Add domain” button and enter your domain name (e.g. myfriendben.com). Follow the prompts to verify your domain ownership. You’ll have different verification methods available, such as adding a TXT record or an HTML file to your domain’s DNS settings.
  4. Set up DNS records in Hespia: Log in to your control panel provided by your web hosting provider.
  5. Locate the DNS management section: In your control panel, look for the DNS management section or a similar option. This allows you to manage your domain’s DNS records.
  6. Add DNS records for Office 365: In the DNS management section, add the required DNS records for Office 365. Here are the commonly needed records:

    • MX (Mail Exchanger) Record: Add an MX record with the priority and destination provided by Office 365. This directs your email traffic to the Office 365 servers.
    • TXT (Text) Record: Add a TXT record to verify your domain ownership. This record contains a verification code or token provided by Office 365.
    • CNAME (Canonical Name) Record: Add a CNAME record for autodiscover.yourdomain.com, pointing to autodiscover.outlook.com. This enables automatic configuration of email clients.

  7. Wait for DNS propagation: DNS changes can take some time to propagate across the internet. Typically, it takes a few minutes to a few hours, but it can occasionally take longer. Be patient and allow some time for the changes to take effect.
  8. Verify domain in Office 365: Once the DNS changes have propagated, go back to the Office 365 Admin Center and click on the “Verify” button next to your domain. Office 365 will check for the DNS records and verify domain ownership.
  9. Create email accounts: After your domain is verified, you can start creating email accounts. In the Office 365 Admin Center, go to the Users section and click on “Active users.” Click the “Add a user” button to create a new email account associated with your domain.
  10. Configure email clients: To access your Office 365 email, you can use email clients like Outlook or configure it on mobile devices. Follow the instructions provided by Office 365 to set up your email client using your newly created email address.


That’s it! You have successfully set up your email address in Office 365 using your domain name hosted in the Hespia control panel. Remember to update your domain’s DNS settings if you make any changes in Office 365, such as adding or removing email accounts.
