Error when trying to add TXT and SPF to DNS records


I’d like to add a new value to TXT and SPF but when I try to add record, I get the following message regarding the “name” field:
“Invalid hostname: Use ‘@’ to represent the root domain.”

Here’s the screenshot:

This happens for both, TXT and SPF - I can’t add any of them.

What do I have to do to make it work?

Thanks in advance for you help!

Dont use SPF, just TXT. And the name field should only contain “@”.

Thank you for the prompt reply Sandro. I added TXT and it worked! Why not SPF? My host support told me to do this because some of the webmail emails are not being forwarded to my Yahoo mailbox.

SPF records have been deprecated and succeeded by TXT.
