DKIM from MailChimp fails to add to DNS settings

Hello!

I am trying to add CNAME as per the instruction of MailChimp (https://monosnap.com/file/kKf6jBg71jcfLUOrX4Y6vDHN7nrzyo), but I receive this error - https://monosnap.com/file/Ao0Ppna0suIysviqBYLljdTijtCteQ

Can you please help me understand what I am doing wrong?

Click the :orange: icon to de-proxy that entry before trying to add it.

Alright, it seemed to have worked this way, thanks!

Should I wait for 24-48 hours and then try to authenticate domain on MailChimp side?

Also, on the CNAME record it now says “k1._domainkey” istead of “k1._domainkey.workandliveinchina.com” as er the instruction, Could that be a problem while verifying the domain?

Technically it already resolves. Unless Mailchimp has some cached values they should be already able to verify it.

As of now, I still receive this error on MailChimp side when trying to verify - https://monosnap.com/file/9iNPQ0TJEk6QpQNv087PnPQEGkhMsV

In that case I’d suggest to wait a bit. The CNAME is properly configured
