This is a short blog post how you can create the DNS records and entry for Microsoft Exchange Autodiscover in the Genotec Hosting Control Panel. This works also with other DNS providers as well.
You can find more information about Microsoft Exchange on Microsoft Docs.
I hope this blog post gives you an overview of how you create a DNS entry for your Microsoft Exchange Autodiscover setup. If you have any questions, please leave a comment.
