DKIM Record - Formatting Issue

Hi,
I’m trying to properly set up my DKIM Record. I’ve been using the exact record that is supplied to me by my Cpanel:

default._domainkey.seidl.soy.

v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIIBIjANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAAOCAQ8AMIIBCgKCAQEAsCfQ2wURd1D4LZLkoKFK0Oh1x/q9q3D3yQBm+GRGtmIfe5Ct+F9ya+thy+D+1io+LPQ6XbhMv1LQK7wtmqzkzDljNUFXhtHFAtDVnvTdQ3iGB1TkjwCnYNRffUHncd8K/8vA/qZq5FtxXqFVYRyHmL6CJqHntqUFaKUzKrfuR0ufFDcJBbx2oMLbURtrmE1Qp" "2+MTBJISPAutoJ/0T8LkrZUpFqPzLg+BN9Wm0r+OvsICCKCW3ItYFnXYmYbKnm8PvoO79OHMHAJabtqet7CJLdyKj7oeYEw7bKnxWUXK7WcjBAUTvyFrrKAQwtLRoKmOsLsWixwlglCXmi0D21uhwIDAQAB;

So I’ve pasted it into my Cloudflare DNS settings, and it should be fine. According to my own Cpanel diagnostics, its also confirming that it matches in the DNS. However, when sending a test email to MxToolbox, the DKIM is coming up with an error, and indeed, the DKIM record looks slightly different:

v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIIBIjANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAAOCAQ8AMIIBCgKCAQEAsCfQ2wURd1D4LZLkoKFK0Oh1x/q9q3D3yQBm+GRGtmIfe5Ct+F9ya+thy+D+1io+LPQ6XbhMv1LQK7wtmqzkzDljNUFXhtHFAtDVnvTdQ3iGB1TkjwCnYNRffUHncd8K/8vA/qZq5FtxXqFVYRyHmL6CJqHntqUFaKUzKrfuR0ufFDcJBbx2oMLbURtrmE1Qp" "2+MTBJISPAutoJ/0T8LkrZUpFqPzLg+BN9Wm0r+OvsICCKCW3ItYFnXYmYbKnm8PvoO79OHMHAJabtqet7CJLdyKj7oeYEw7bKnxWUXK7WcjBAUTvyFrrKAQwtLRoKmOsLsWixwlglCXmi0D21uhwIDAQAB;

It looks like the " quote sign that I paste into Cloudflare from Cpanel, get turned into “” “” in the end result, and this might be what breaks the DKIM? At least that’s what I suspect, because the report is telling me “The value is not in the right format” regarding the DKIM. Here’s a link to the report.
Would appreciate any input or advice!

What you can try is removing the space and the quotes added by cPanel, making it a one long record, and letting Cloudflare handle the splitting.

FYI you can use backticks or the code icon to make others see what you mean.

Wow, this indeed worked! Thanks so much, a simple solution but it would have probably taken me days to think of it by myself! Have a great day!
