I have a fully functional website, running fine for web users. I have spent months trying to get email running on it (presently using a hack solution of a private Gmail account through my Flask app). As part of my recent discovery, I found that the several TXT records I created on the base site (using @, i.e. the base site URL name) were not discernable from the outside. No TXT records are shown from whatsmydns.net, whether I use my domain name or the actual IP. These TXT records are months old, not just recently created ones. From inside DO, these TXT records show up perfectly fine. What do I need to do to make my TXT records show up properly?
