I updated DNS entries to add two new TXT records last Sunday night and they still do not appear to have propagated. Example TXT record: announcements.cccchelmsford.org set to "v=spf1 include:sendgrid.net ~all"

Can somebody verify that I correctly entered this record and help me understand either why it hasn't worked yet or when I can expect it to take effect?

Thanks!

Things change, but I do not believe you are allowed 2 SPF records. You need to combine them. I have never tried this, but it should look something like this...

v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com include:sendgrid.net ~all

Thanks Drew, that is helpful, but my other TXT record is also not propagating. I am trying to whitelabel sendgrid.com emails and they require the following DNS entries:

MX:

(works)
announcements.cccchelmsford.org -> mx.sendgrid.net

TXT:

(NOT propagating)
m1._domainkey.cccchelmsford.org -> k=rsa; t=s; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQDbn7n2zQYxDulb5vvYicYzIK3qq60HdgwqEgI4vZWBCKSACXgkisYxZUqmjUMU3ZwH2+EC4+Dv9JGm7/7aMgyo+8tif+cEBZwCBC1mjyRqAPgjPDbR+rgwvEMyscgwILUVtKi5hqrtmSr0/QtgAAyHz0eEswV95FreIZp3X7IHZQIDAQAB

(I merged this rule into the "@" record as you suggested.)
announcements.cccchelmsford.org -> v=spf1 include:sendgrid.net ~all 


Can you please help?

Thanks

What is the record that is not propagating? Is it a TXT or SRV? I have never seen an underscore add to a record before on these nameservers. They usually give an error.
