I have a website and I tried to configure my domain to work my email on Outlook so that I can have my email addresses with my own domain. This worked sucessfully for me.
I had two scenarios:
Outlook required that I set my MX settings as follows:
DNS record type: MX Host: mydomain.com MX server: 1234567890123456789.pamx1.hotmail.com TTL: 14400 Priority: 10 (or High priority)
This worked for me!
DNS record type: MX Host: mydomain.com MX server: mail.mydomain.com TTL: 14400 Priority: 0
Then I used the forwarding option in cPanel to my gmail and this worked.
I want both scenarios to work together i.e. when someone sends me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org I want it to go both to my 'Outlook' email and to my 'Gmail' email.
When I tried to use them the two together and what I had in mind didn't work. Likewise I changed the priority for Scenario 1 to Priority:0 (as in scenario 2).
Only the solution in scenario 2 worked. Is it possible to have what I have in mind in place i.e. receiving emails in both scenario 1 and 2 simultaneously? If yes, what am i doing wrong?
