This is an example of CNAME and TXT configuration according to the records listed in
Domain Management. In some domains the server may look different such as name labels, fields etc. Because each DNS provider has different settings. You can get all the records below in more detail in Domain Management in Transactional Email, because in
Domain Management there is a unique code that is different for each user.
Here is an example of a TXT you need to add:
First TXT Record
Type: TXT Name: (Fill in with your domain) Record/Value: MT=mtmailtarget.co(unique code) TTL: Default
Note: For Record / Value section, they have their own unique code on each user’s Domain Management Dashboard. So to find out your unique code, you can look at Domain Management in Transactional Email.
Second TXT Record
Type: TXT Name: (Fill in with your domain) Record/Value: v=spf1 include:spf.mailtarget.co -all TTL: Default
Do not create more than one TXT for SPF. However, you can add additional records in one configuration.
Record type: CNAME Name: mt1._domainkey.(Fill in with your domain) Record/Value: dkim.mailtarget.co TTL: Default
If the DNS Management on your server domain cannot add the Record dkim.mailtarget.co, please contact your server domain because some old server domains do not provide an option to provide a Record. So you can’t add a dkim.mailtarget.co on your CNAME record.
