We're trying to get Office 365 working but can't get the damn thing to work when running the Microsoft "confirm that you own". Problem is it can take up to 72 hours to populate the DNS servers so every time we change the settings we have to wait 3 days before we find it's wrong!

Currently we have our own server but want to test a trial of Office 365 and currently we have

Left field                            Type   Pri   Right field    a                123.456.789.0         mx    100    123.456.789.0

obviously domain name and IP address altered

and this works fine for remote access to Outlook Web Access and Microsoft Exchange respectively.

What we can't get to work is using what Microsoft advise.......

Left field                            Type   Pri   Right field             MX         ??   ms***********

Has anyone been able to get this to work?
