How to add an autodiscover record in DNS

This guide will show you how to add the autodiscover record in your DNS.

  1. Log into your DNS Control Panel.
  2. Create an CNAME record called "autodiscover.yourdomain.com" that points to the domain name "autodiscover2013.plexhosted.com".
Note:

The A record is necessary for the automatic configuration of Outlook. It is also necessary for many of Outlook features such as: offline address book, managing delegate permissions, automatic out-of-office reply.
Due to distributed nature of DNS, the record you created in this article may take up to 48 hours to propagate.
