What are the steps to add a domain to Office 365 without it taking over DNS management?
Posted on 2012-09-01
I currently use Godaddy for DNS management for a particular domain. I would like to continue to use Godaddy for DNS management, but use Office 365 for e-mail. However, I can not see a way to add the domain in Office 365 without it taking over the DNS management.
Is it as easy as NOT redirecting the domain name servers? That is, I go through all the steps to add a domain name to Office 365. But I ignore the step that says to change the name servers to the Office 365 ones.
Furthermore, I see in other answers that I would remove all e-mail entries in the Godaddy DNS manager and add three items for Office 365.
I just want to make sure that Office 365 does not hijack the DNS management and GoDaddy continues managing the DNS for this domain.
