DNS Propagation Checker

Recently changed my email over to Microsoft’s Office 365 which saved me about 2 thirds on what I was paying!

Migration went ok although I had to manually migrate using Outlook – export to PST from old account, import PST to new account etc.

One piece of advice they did give me was a DNS Propagation Checker that would check the propagation around the world when I changed over my DNS MX records to point to Ofifce 365.

Goto: http://www.whatsmydns.net

To check an MX record change the pull down to MX and enter your domain name e.g. contoso.com, hit search and the map and table will give a green tick or a red x depending on status – invaluable!
