My Google Workspace email can't verify the domain actually send the email

Posted November 11, 2021 97 views

I have domain that I used as my company gmail address in google workspace. Yesterday we changed the domain nameserver to digitalocean.
After we make the MX records, the emails already working again, but gmail can’t verify it.

I’ve read that we need to make TXT with value v=spf1 ip:[IP SERVER] ~all
to make it work, already done that but still not verified.
There’s 2 domains that using my server.

Do I need to do something else?

Hi @devvita,

I can confirm this is not related to your Droplet/Server but to the DNS and more correctly the TXT record. If you’ve made the change recently have in mind the DNS needs up to 48 hours to propagate.

Usually, it’s much faster but just wanted to mention that. Additionally, if all you’ve changed is the Nameservers, it should just be the DNS propagation.
