Microsoft MXs changed over

Today on MailOp it was announced that the migration of Microsoft freemail domains to the office 365 backend. Over the next week the mx*.hotmail.com mail servers will stop working. Check your settings, folks, and make sure you’re correctly querying DNS before sending.

    Heey Laura, how are you doing!
    Thanks for this important notice, I was wondering which mx or route I should put in place?
    Thank you in advance.
    Ayoub.

      Ideally, just have your smarthosts look up the MX records in DNS. If you can’t do that for some reason, make sure your sending behaviour is the same as if you had.

    thank you my friend for your response, do you have any idea what “the route” should be?
    I’m using “route hotmail” in system configuration…
    but I guess it should be replaced by another route! Am I wrong?
    Regards,
    Ayoub.
