Amazon SES TXT and DKIM do not get verified

I am using the Amazon SES for which I have to verify my domain and than update my DNS records such that I use DKIM. In the past I have managed to verify the TXT records but unfortunately more recently they have been deleted so I have to put them back in. As for the DKIM DNS records they do not lead to any changes. I have even got to the extend of inserting them into Amazon’s Route 53.

I’ve searched on google and I found out that the TXT record name should end on a ‘.’. As well for the DKIM name and data value. But again, this does not work for me. Would the problems arise because I have a TXT record from google as well ? To my mind there should be no problem. I also have some MX records from google. I am out of ideas, any suggestions ?

Hi @stefann,

I am face with the same issue. How did you fix it?


Without seeing the actual records it’s tough to say what the problem with them is. If you are adding these records via our control panel I would recommend encapsulating your TXT record content in quotes " as failing to do this is the most common issue I see with TXT records on DO.
