Your missing a dot at the end of your domain. It should be instead of

As of this writing your values should be like this:
Name= mandrill._domainkey
Value= v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQCrLHiExVd55zd/IQ/J/mRwSRMAocV/hMB3jXwaHH36d9NaVynQFYV8NaWi69c1veUtRzGt7yAioXqLj7Z4TeEUoOLgrKsn8YnckGs9i3B3tVFB+Ch/4mPhXWiNfNdynHWBcPcbJ8kjEQ2U8y78dHZj1YeRXXVvWob2OaKynO8/lQIDAQAB;
Note that in Name you drop your domain after the domainkey. DigitalOcean automatically adds your domain to the end.

Name= @
Value= “v=spf1 ?all”
Make sure you have the quotes around the value. Mine didn’t work without quotes.

in both cases make sure you are creating a TXT record
