Hi Everyone this is Prem, I have worked as Microsoft 365 support ambassador for quite sometime, In this blog we will get to know how to Verify your Domain in Office 365.
In office 365 we can add custom domain and create email addresses with it as well, There are 2 action which we can perform with the domain, we can verify it or we can verify and then connect the services to Microsoft, verifying the domain allows us to be able to use the domain in Office 365 but connecting the domain helps us with sending and receiving emails from and to the Microsoft server.
We will talk about Verify your Domain in Office 365:
Go to https://Office.com and Sign in with the Global Admin account. Only a global admin can perform these steps.
Click on Admin Tile:
Click on Settings and then click on Domain:
Then Click on Add a domain:
Select “Add a TXT record to the domain’s DNS records” For how do you want to verify your domain Option and then click Continue:
The next step is to copy the unique TXT value, TXT name and TTL provided here and create a TXT Record at the Domain DNS provider (where the domain’s Name servers are pointing) with the TXT information provided:
Once the Txt Record is created click on Verify option to confirm the Record is added correctly. (It takes minimum 10 minutes for it to propagate the txt records and for Microsoft to detect it)
Once it shows that the domain is verified you can close the wizard by clicking on save and close, You don’t have to Connect the domain to Office 365 as it will move the email services to Microsoft thus changing your mail flow.
