SRV Record Syntax for Autodiscover

Im looking for the syntax used when creating SRV Record that will allow the autodiscover service with Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2007.

Microsoft says a SRV record for Autodiscover should include the below information as an example.
Service: _autodiscover
Protocol: _tcp
Port Number: 443
Host: mail.contoso.com

My Hosting provider (Aplus.net) does give me the ability to create SRV Record but just gives a "Name" and "Value" field where i can add information. I assume in the "Name" field I would specify "_autodiscover" and then in the Value field is where I have the problem. It has to be one line of text that tells the system what the protocol, port number, and host are.

Thanks Chad. Thats what I needed.

If anyone wants to add this sort of SRV Record with Aplus.net Hosting you will need to specify the below example information when creating a DNS Record:

Name: _autodiscover._tcp.contoso.com
Type: IN SVR
Value: 0 0 443 remote.contoso.com

If you do it wrong you will get errors but it will tell you whats wrong.

For anyone who would like to know Also FYI in the value field the first 2 "0" are for priority and weight respectively. You can create multiple SRV records with the same "name" as backups.
