Mailjet SPF & DKIM to DigitalOcean

Hi guys,

I try to setup an mail server by Mailjet.com to my DigitalOcean Discourse 2.0.220180802 Droplet. So I added a domain to the droplet that dircets to the discourse server.

Domain: example-community.de
A     example-community.de     directs to 46.101.***.***          3600 
NS    example-community.de     directs to ns1.digitalocean.com.   1800
NS    example-community.de     directs to ns2.digitalocean.com.   1800 
NS    example-community.de     directs to ns3.digitalocean.com.   1800

Also in Mailjet: Add domain example-community.de

Host: mailjet._d780712a@example-community.de
Value TXT: d780713ae1560f4e28d8f15e8048271 

Then i add a DNS recod to DigitalOcean

Type TXT
Hostname: mailjet._d780712a
Value: d780713ae1560f4e28d8f15e8048271

so it looks like:

TXT    mailjet._d780712a.example-community.de    3600

Now try to validate, but it fails.

If I switch to edit domain in Mailjet, there are also:
SPF-Record:

example-community.de.
TXT: v=spf1 include:spf.mailjet.com ?all

and DomainKeys/DKIM

mailjet._domainkey.example-community.de.
k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQDh/72U9BmklM5b19iKfsPsrTD54YIvjar4Li+p+zFmGqP3

Where is my mistake?

I think I have a similar issue,
I have a mail server on one of droplets, it works, but dkim it’s not working,
My domain name is from namecheap.com so I configured dkim record on namecheap,
My question is, do I have to configure dkim dns record here in DigialOcean?
In other words, Does digitalocean blocking other dkim? so I have to open/configure it here again?

Hey, @dufner @jalalhaj
I was facing some similar issues, wherein my dkim was not working.
I thought this was too complicated process, and my peers suggested me Pepipost.
Wherein my Domain was verified quickly.
I am now currently sending bulk Emails through Pepipost and I love their service too.
