I have recently created a subdomain in cPanel.
I want to use that subdomain for office 365 email service. I could not create the MX record for that subdomain in cPanel's zone editor. How do I do that?

The MX Record always have to be a string of characters, which resolves to the IP address of the Mail Service where you would like to receive emails.
