    May you please help diagnose and fix my Your email will never see the light of an inbox message from Mail Tester?

    This is funky stuff, because, I'm able to send / receive email from the email account on cPanel and I tested with both my Yahoo and @gmail address'

    1st Spam Test Report
    mail-tester.com/web-8PNXdN

    2nd Spam Test Report
    mail-tester.com/web-V1DiQH

    I'm using this website to lookup MX: mxtoolbox.com

    I used this Wizard to generate stuff: socketlabs.com/domainkey-dkim-generation-wizard/

    • Was I suppose to use "default" as a selector?

    I created (2) new TXT Records in my Zone File Editor:

    Code:
    host = default._domainkey
    TXT Value = k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQChLvxYr6kEY7hcWsgWGCqniU+l 4Mm5GdHXbUhlCsOVKpJZIk6BZds+sfITT5zrvjKBGMtJKdg2+gUBYpf0gcVVwoZx Q9xT99PsSlCFl4V1g0tFRXuIifUfsiws/x05+LvH8hkKDcnByjjcJNFklcde8ENR MYExLV8a0ZYOYcidNwIDAQAB
    
    host = _domainkey
    TXT Value = t=y;o=~;
    
    
    Here are the results
    - Removed -

    ---

    Inside of cPanel, I type "Authentication" and enable both "DKIM" and "SPF".

    • Does this mean it's 100% working? Under DKIM is says "Status: Enabled Active (DNS Check Passed)"

    I see code box under SPF and says "Your current raw SPF record::"

    v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:104.238.133.xxx ~all

    Where do I put this? When I click "Add SPF Record" inside DNSManager, I get the popup.

    *notes = GoDaddy Registered TLD > GoDaddy Premium DNS > VPS Droplet hosted offsite > cPanel / WHM

    • Does GoDaddy send mail? I want cPanel to send mail, but does it have to pass through GoDaddy Premium DNS to work properly?

    • When I goto add SPF record from Authentication cPanel into the Zone FIle Editor, I see a confusing modal.

    - Removed -

    • What should go inside the "Outbound" and "PTR" and "Outsourced" tab? Do you need screenshots?

    You may download Unix Zone File Export from DNSManager here: - Removed -

    ...this stuff is fun to play around with, it's just that I need a little mini break. Burned up a few hours on this stuff...hehejeja

    Hello :)

    Is the DNS for this domain name handled on the cPanel server or through your hosting provider? Note that you may want to consult with GoDaddy if you are using one of their products to handle the DNS separately.

    Thank you.

    Yes. Domain Registered @ GoDaddy, Premium DNS Purchased and then VPS is hosted offsite hosting cPanel / WHM / WHMCS

    I setup the premium DNS because I desired Vanity NS and also more stability...the GoDaddy sales page was persuasive. Do you think the premium DNS is not needed?

    Thanks buddy, I'm gonna give them a try. It seemed more logical last night to reach out to them, but I was hoping you might automagically have results ^ _ ^
