Google and Microsoft are common companies that will ask you to verify your ownership of a domain by adding a TXT or CNAME to your domain.

You can add the CNAME yourself. Click on Domains on the left, and then the manage domains to open the list of your domains.


Find the domain you are adding the record to and hit the Advanced DNS settings


Click Edit


Click Add a new CNAME.


If you have to use a TXT record, then we have to add that for you. Please post the domain name and the TXT record you need added and we will be happy to enter it for you.

We have added the ability for you to add these records yourself. You can go to the advanced DNS settings on the domain tab to add it. You will need the host name as well.

Hi randall0093,   I'm sorry but our system does not accept SRV records at this time. I'm afraid I won't be able to add those for you.

Google apps is saying that the DKIM authentication isn't working.  Can you replace the current TXT record value with this one:

v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQDd1DbNHY2rpMv4vX1L/NOyKdMVP+uicAbqC+EI/t9cFa1lPCoep+jS6pLm4c5qhE2+Zs+iT2jTLGbVPDFgR1271TS/15tK4UIP+d/DtyFxhh3xTzNyVRNwVDjGhJiNtPVLBC2P8sjtDsRE+qQ2GynsK+Oq8dz2JlSXV/pK52MEDQIDAQAB

I think the problem was that you used @ as the host name for both records. In your above post it says to use google._domainkey I believe it is now correct

Please would you help to do the following (as per my email marketing company):
My website is intuitivetouchanimalcare.com 

Thus kindly publish your SPF policy & more importantly include/append/add the below given part to your existing SPF record:-
v=spf1 a mx include:<a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="http://bmsend.com/">bmsend.com</a> ~all

This will cover ALL the mail servers for Benchmark Email.

Thank you

I'm sorry, I thought I updated this topic. I got a record in there in a format that the system would take. It isn't exactly as you provided, so have your email marketers check the DNS. Our mail people say it should work.
