This problem has been bothering me for 2 days and hope you guys can give me some advice.
I try to set up outlook.com as my mail service. And of course it require me to update my MX record to point to Microsoft's server.
And now, the problem is, no matter how I set the MX record, the value always end with my domain name. For example my domain is
abc.com and I'm using
BIND 9.7.3. Please refer the script below. But when I query using
nslookup either using command line or online tool. I get the exchange value as
a2d53f710931b4f6.pamx1.hotmail.com.abc.com. I tried the same thing on another server at a different datacenter and it turns out to be fine.
Do you guys have any idea what's wrong here? Is it my new server's
BIND default setting problem or the network provider setting that effect it?
$ORIGIN abc.com. @ IN SOA ns1.abc.com. postmaster.abc.com. ( 2013022427 8H 2H 7D 1D ) IN NS ns1.abc.com. IN NS ns2.abc.com. IN MX 10 a2d53f710931b4f6.pamx1.hotmail.com
