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: IN TXT "k=rsa; t=y; p=MIGfM...(longrsapublickey)...f323a0

Is the whole thing a "value" or is the 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..

up vote 0 down vote accepted 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
