Cannot set TXT record name explicitly as @

I am trying to verify my domain on an smtp server, but one of the steps is to set one of the records as TXT with the name “@”, but whenever i try to use that sign, it edits the name of the page to the root name and i cannot use “@” explicitly in the records.

An @ means the domain root.

I know, but the txt record name should be @ for verification, but it is being edited to be root. Isn’t there a way to use @ explicitly without being edited?

@ means the root domain. It isn’t being verified as @. @ is simply used by most common DNS software to represent the root domain when entered. It is translated to the root domain.
