My hosts' DNS manager allows adding a name and a value for a TXT record, I am confused because I need to add a DKIM entry such as this:

mail._domainkey.foo.com. IN TXT "k=rsa; t=y; p=MIGfM...(longrsapublickey)...f323a0

Is the whole thing a "value" or is the mail._domainkey.foo.com. name and after "IN TXT" is the value? I had tried that and it said ignoring out of zone data so that cannot be it..

mail._domainkey.foo.com. is the name "k=rsa; t=y; p=MIGfM...(longrsapublickey)...f323a0" is the value.

May be your manager needs you to add only the mail._domainkey part

Yep, seems to work on my dig .. although it truncates the public key and escapes quotes, gotta figure that out next. –  John R. Dec 6 '10 at 12:40
