Post Set up an existing domain with iCloud Mail
by nriding on vendredi 1 avril 2022

Apple has is now offering to allow me to use my domain with iCloud mail. I have started the process but can configure the DNS entries correctly. Their instructions are.

TXT:
Record Type: TXT
Host: @
Value: [Enter the personal TXT record provided during set up]

SPF:
Record Type: TXT
Host: @
Value: "v=spf1 include:icloud.com ~all"
If you already have an SPF record, simply add "include:icloud.com" to the value before "~all".

MX:
Record Type: MX
Host: @
Value: mx01.mail.icloud.com.
Priority: 10

MX:
Record Type: MX
Host: @
Value: mx02.mail.icloud.com.
Priority: 10

DKIM:
Record Type: CNAME
Host: sig1._domainkey
Value: sig1.dkim.example.com.at.icloudmailadmin.com.

* If your registrar doesn't support “@”, enter your domain name as the host. If your registrar doesn't support quotes or trailing periods in the record values, enter the value without quotes or trailing periods. TTL should be set to 3600 seconds or 1 hour.

The the problem seems to be the DKIM entry I can't change the "Host" value?

Any suggestions on how to Fix.

The above Host field value should be filled in the Node Name field in the Dynu DNS Records page. With an @ Host, the Node Name field should be left empty.

Hey thanks for your answer.

I’m sorry, but I do not understand what you mean.

However, in my case, iCloud is always asking for check the mx records. It seems I can’t end it with a dot (.)

You can skip the dot and not enter it.

You can open a support ticket with Dynu with details of your issue and they will be able to assist you promptly. You may also post details of the issue here if you do not mind revealing that information.

I just got a notification on this topic so I thought I'd update it in the hopes it will assist others.

I got a response from the Dynu support team with this information.

The Host is the Node Name in our system. We have added the CNAME record requested by Apple but kept it as disabled. You may enable it when ready.
It's not much but I was able to complete the setup with this information.

Hope this is helpful.
