Cannot Contact Outlook.com

Mail for some reason is not delivering to outlook.com
Find your namservers.

#cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 69.xx.xx.xx
nameserver 69.xx.xx.xx

– in this case the example is 69.xx.xx.xx

$ dig MX outlook.com @69.xx.xx.xx
; <<>> DiG 9.9.2-P2-RedHat-9.9.2-3.P2.el5 <<>> MX outlook.com @69.64.66.11
