When you configure your Hosted Exchange Email account, the setup wizard helps you create an organization and one or more email addresses.
For information about switching to Hosted Exchange Email from other email configurations, see Switching to a Hosted Exchange Email Account.
NOTE: Because Hosted Exchange Email requires a change to your domain name's MX records, it can take 24-48 hours for the first email addresses to be set up. Once the MX records update, any subsequent email addresses are ready within 15 minutes.
Get started by creating your Organization and adding one or more email addresses. When you first set up your mailboxes, they are configured on a temporary domain. You can change the domain in the next step.
You must add a domain to your Organization to create your email addresses. Your Organization can use multiple domains.
NOTE: If you are using a domain name not registered with us, or registered in a different account, you need to manually update your DNS Records. For more information, see Updating DNS Records for Hosted Exchange.
NOTE: CNAME Records control Outlook Web Access, online access to your email, and Autodiscover, syncing your Hosted Exchange email with mobile devices and Outlook.
NOTE: If you are using a domain name not registered with us, or registered in a different shopper account, you need to manually update your CNAME records at your registrar. For more information, see Updating DNS Records for Hosted Exchange.
For every domain name you use with Hosted Exchange Email, you need to update your MX and CNAME records.
After adding your domain, you can assign it to your email address.
