How to configure emails through DigitalOcean DNS for Gandi-managed domained ?
I bought kidkod.io domain name on Gandi, and I am trying to link it with digital ocean’s DNS.
I set up an email redirection on gandi :
contact@ => forwards to : firstname.lastname@example.org
* Gandi alert :
Gandi display an alert on my email configuration, as follow :
“This domain is not using our LiveDNS nameservers. You can use Gandi Mail with any nameserver, but if you’re experiencing issues with your email please refer to your DNS provider and ensure that the domain’s DNS configuration contains the following records:
@ 10800 IN MX 10 spool.mail.gandi.net.
@ 10800 IN MX 50 fb.mail.gandi.net.
@ 10800 IN TXT "v=spf1 include:_mailcust.gandi.net ?all”
* Digital Ocean conf:
A the same time, I set up the Digital Ocean DNS to :
Type Hostname Value TTL
TXT kidkod.io returns “v=spf1 include:_mailcust.gandi.net ?all” 3600
MX kidkod.io mail handled by fb.mail.gandi.net.50 14400
MX kidkod.io mail handled by spool.mail.gandi.net. 10 14400
A kidkod.io directs to 220.127.116.11 3600
NS kidkod.io directs to ns1.digitalocean.com. 1800
NS kidkod.io directs to ns2.digitalocean.com. 1800
NS kidkod.io directs to ns3.digitalocean.com. 1800
* Problem :
I don’t receive any mail if I send one to email@example.com it get lost in the wild (and no error message back neither).
What do I do wrong ?
