Migrating Email From Rackspace To Office 365 Godaddy Domain

We have been moving some customers over to Office 365.

Here are some of the steps required to do this.

  1. Setup the account in Office 365.
  2. Use the migration tool
  3. In Office 365 go under Setup >> Domains >> give it a second and it should populate the 3 records you will need to update.
    MX
    TXT
    CNAME
  4. We removed all the older record pertaining to SecureServer.net which was POP, SMTP, CNAME, TXT, and the MX record.
  5. Added the 3 records shown above.
  6. Sent a test and received the email. Replied back and was able to verify the customer could receive the email.

Godaddy Hosting Websites In Other Directories

We have a customer with Deluxe hosting with Godaddy. They have several sites running on separate hosting packages and we were able to combine both websites on to one hosting package.

The big trick was directing the domain to the right folder in the Public HTML folder. In the CPanel navigate to Domains >> Addon Domains.

Next to the Domain name you want to change click the Pencil icon next to the Document Root. Here you can enter the name of the new directory/folder you want this site to live.

Godaddy Domain To Office 365

We recently had to move a domain from Wild West Domains to another Godaddy Reseller hosting account. This was able to be done in just a few minutes where a domain transfer usually takes a week to complete. We ran into issue when Godaddy moved the DNS in the background and then asked me what the MX record was. They didn’t explain to me that that we should have written it down, so now we had to start from scratch.

I logged into their Office 365 account as the Admin and went to Setup >> Domains.  We could see there were issues with the various records.

We clicked on the domain name with the issue and it lead us to some screens to fix the issue.

We clicked on the “click here to view”.

Clicking on “Fix my Records” took me to a Godaddy Login where it asked for authorization and then it would fix my records; however, I had already went in and manually updated the records. Their page gave me good instructions on what records to add.  It was broken up in sections and those sections had titles. Those title were the type of record I needed to add. In the image above you will see “MX Records” and CName Records”.

My final records were as follows:
