Question

DKIM record domain duplication (Mandrill)?

Ubuntu Email DNS Control Panels

I have a fresh install of Discourse, which is up and running, bar emails.

I have a new account with Mandrill, and set up Discourse to send emails as per the recommended guides.

For some reason

./launcher mailtest app

generates incorrect DKIF and SPF information. For example

We found a record named mandrill._domainkey.example.com.example.com. Try changing it to mandrill._domainkey.example.com.

I manually attempted to create a TXT record under DNS and the zone file displays the same result.

Any suggestions on how to resolve?

Use mandrill._domainkey instead of mandrill._domainkey.yourdomain.com, as DigitalOcean automatically appends the domain name to TXT records.
