    Hi Syed,

    Me too want to know the details about the below screenshot. Is this will be problem to us with the existing emails and email IDs.

    Pls help us, as we are newbies and can’t understand Microsoft’s technical explanations.

    Microsoft has pulled the plug on this.

    I’ve setup a petition to Microsoft to allow us to keep our accounts as is without migrating them to Office 365.

    Thank you for this information. It was very helpful!

    Thank you so much!! This is such a great guide to setting up a custom email. You helped me and my family’s Company to add a professional touch to our email services! I only have one problem and that is when I entered the new MX Record I was not aware that you would have to delete any existing Records in that area otherwise it will interfere with the activation of the account. Other than that I’m totally happy!
