Pending Nameserver Update Issue

I have a .eu TLD in Godaddy which NS records are pointing to cloudflare. In the domain overview on cloudflare I can see that the .eu domain I am talking about is listed as “Pending Nameserver Update”.

I have issue a “dig” command on the linux command line like so --> $ dig -t NS, the nameservers of Cloudflare are being returned. I have also set all the records (A, AAAA, CNAME, …) for that domain which work just fine.

The problem I am having is with emails. I am using mailcheap as mailserver, they need an SPF record which I have set up correctly but they are saying its missing.

Because I have 3 other domains with Cloudflare that work just fine with that mailserver, I expect it to have something to do with that “Pending Nameserver Update” shown in the overview.

Anyone having the same issues please?

this is what I am getting when sending mail though that TLD.

This is the mail system at host mail14 mymailcheap

You did not replace your previous nameservers but you just added Cloudflare’s. You need to remove the others and only keep Cloudflare in order to validate on Cloudflare.

thats not the case, I have godaddy open in front of me, there is

how do you know the old ones are still there?

Then please explain this to me :wink:

Interestingly enough I am not seeing it when doing the same thing
