Issues creating email hosting link in DNS

Hi there,

 

I've been currently building a Managed Wordpress site with Godaddy, and want to create an email associated with it. Unfortunately, my domain is hosted elsewhere on NetRegistry. I've tried to follow the instructions, but it seems NetRegistry doesn't accept '@'.

 

How do I fix this? See information below.

 

  • TXT Record: Find where to add a TXT record, and enter

TXT Value

@

MS=ms79409976

@

v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all

Error Msg Please correct the following error(s):

Name may only contain "[0-9]", "[a-z]", "-" or "_" characters.

A TXT/SPF record must begin and end with a speech mark (")

This is the format of txt record
