Domain still unverified after 48hrs in mailgun
I have followed http://code.krister.ee/mailgun-digitalocean/ this tutorial to get mailgun working but even after 48 hrs my domain is still not verified. What could be the reason?
This question was answered by @sugarhill:
Ok let’s start from the beginning to make this work
change your A record from “www.example.com” to “example.com” (remove “www”)
change cname from “www.www.example.com.” to just “www” (you actually did this before, but now the second www will not be added since you changed A record. So simply just put in “www” as before)
then change cname “email.www.example.com” to just “email” (you also did this before, but again now the www doesn’t get added). This is what prevented mailgun from validating.
After these changes it should work :)
P.S: “www.example.com. 1800 IN MX 10 mxb.mailgun.org.” is duplicate in your mx record. The duplicate should be another mailgun server with a different value then “10” (e.g. 20). Don’t know since I only use mailgun for transactional email (mails send by system) and not to actually receive emails. For receiving emails free I recommend “zoho.com” (while you can still keep mailgun for your system)
