See attached - I purchase domain on godaddy.com and i have my own server so usually I put

NS1.asdfasdfasdf.NET
NS2.asdfasdfasdf.NET

And then I can host my own website.

My questions, if I want to host email on Office 365. Can I still use my own NameServers above while I use Office 365? If yes, what I need to do?

I actually prefer to use my own name server. but I do not want host email on the web server.

You can have your web server at GoDaddy and your email elsewhere.  I've had good luck with GoDaddy's tech support so I'd give them a call.  They should be able to walk you through the whole process.  You're paying for the support, so I'd use it!

OK... the issue isn't the web server, then, it's your experience with GoDaddy support.

You should be able to configure your name server to use any appropriate email server.  I'm afraid I'm not the one to give you the answers for use with Office 365.  You may be able to find the answers you need through the Office 365 host.

You should be able to set your domain MX records to use any email service you want while A and CNAME records deal with web traffic.

I don't know how GoDaddy controls DNS management but this should be easy to do.

Yes, It can be done.

To host office 365 to your own server, you must be contact your service provider. They might be help you on installation.
