Question

AMAZON SES > DigitalOcean CNAME not working

Hello EVeryone,

This is my website http://workwatch.co.nz

I have the domain registered through Discount domains. But I’m using DigitalOcean to handle all the DNS records.

Everything is sweet, But I cannot seem to setup the AMAZON SES DKIM records with the DigitalOCean control panel.

I entered the CNAME values as given to me, but the verifications on AWS control panel fails continuously. Any help with this would be really appreciated.

Sahan.

Forgive me if I’m wrong, but usually, DKIM/SPF are TXT records, usually also used for verifications,not CNAME’s - have may want to confirm (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/latest/DeveloperGuide/dns-txt-records.html) as SES says it confirms with TXT records and if you are putting them in as CNAME’s that may be the issue at hand.
