Office 365 Generic MX Records mail.global.frontbridge.com retired by KING.NET

I wrote a step-by-step procedure on how to Scan-to-Email using Office 365 SMTP setting last August 2014. Read it here - Whaddya.com.
Today, the generic mail.global.frontbridge.com is no longer accepting SMTP connection to send email. Don't worry, it's a simple fix and it should be your correct configuration anyway.

Login to your Office 365 portal as an Administrator, go to Admin center preview. Click Settings then Domains. Under domain name, click your company domain name. For example, I click our company domain e.g. hardworking.com.

In Exchange Online, you will see your MX record that point to hardworking-com.protection.outlook.com record. The SMTP server format should be [hardworking-com].protection.outlook.com , replacing hardworking-com with your company domain name.

After that, go to your Printer admin console and update your SMTP record. To make it simple, please see a captured screen of my updated printer configuration.

After updating to hardworking-com.protection.outlook.com
KING.NET - hardworking-com.mail.protection.outlook.com.smtp
KING.NET - hardworking-com.mail.protection.outlook.com.smtp

You should be able to print to scan through your Office 365 emails.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
