Office 365 Home relies on a Microsoft account for authentication.

    JS: did you actually delete the zone @GD and it still works, or do you have your own DNS _in addition_ to the zone at GD?

    See below for the GD one, so far everything has been working fine, even MAC OS mail app is able to auto dect exchange settings and setup the account with no issues.
