Hotmail to Outlook live migration question about MX record RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    One of the steps mentioned during the migration from hotmail to outlook live is this:

    Edit the MX record for the domain

    1. Sign in to the domain management tool at the DNS hosting service for your domain.
    2. Remove the Hotmail MX record.
    3. Add an MX Record for <token> and set it to the highest priority.
      Note   If you have a third-party MX record, in the Service Management Portal Migration page, click Refresh. Once the removal of the Hotmail MX record is detected, click Skip MX Check.

    What must the <token> be in the <token> namespace?
