Leading underscores in DNS?

Post by rjmx » Tue Dec 26, 2017 2:49 pm

I’m trying to set up a DMARC DNS record. The record should be named:

_dmarc.my.domain

Note the leading underscore. I’ve entered that with the appropriate data in my DNS entries, but it doesn’t seem to be getting propagated. Is a leading underscore in a DNS name allowed?

OK, never mind. Looks like I was a little impatient. I can see it now.

Sorry about that.

No problem, we'll look in to the propagation delay. Changes should appear in real time without any delays.
