Once you've added your custom "From" address to Hive, you can add DNS records to verify your domain. Until a domain is verified, emails will be sent from email@example.com.
Open your DNS provider and add the Sending and Receiving values found in your Email Settings page in Hive. Common providers include:
- GoDaddy: MX - CNAME - TXT
- Network Solutions: MX - CNAME - TXT
- Rackspace Email &Apps
- Rackspace Cloud DNS
- Amazon Route 53
- Digital Ocean
Once you’ve added the records and they’ve propagated, your domain will be verified. Note it can take 24 - 48 hours for DNS changes to propagate.
If after 48 hours your domain still isn't verified, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
