Unable to verify sending email domain via DNS


I've added my domain to{organizationId}/emails > Email domains and added all DNS records shown there. For now all DNS records are green except last TXT record which is shown as red:

TXT atlassian-sending-domain-verification={guid}

If we2022-01-14_14-20-42.jpg

When we hover mouse pointer over red circle the following message is shown:

"The value for this TXT record is missing from your domain provider"

However this record is added to DNS of my domain and I can see it e.g. in (Name field shown there is set to domain name. I.e. exactly how it is shown in Atlassian):


But still when I click Run DNS record check this TXT record validation fails and I get email "We're unable to confirm a match".

Any ideas what can be wrong?

PS. Note that another TXT record for SPF is also added to DNS and shown as green in Atlassian. So problem is only with this last TXT verification record.

PPS. Before that I also added general domain verification (which is used for managing users accounts in organization, i.e. not for emails sending) using another TXT record:

TXT atlassian-domain-verification={id}

and this record is still there. Can it be related somehow?

Hi @Storeolis Admin 

Sorry for the inconvenience here.  I found that your domain was in a group of those that were affected by a service failure:

We have identified a temporary failure on our email service providers side where attempts to create new domains between 23:00:00 AEST January 12th to 03:30:00 AEST January 14th failed to create the Bounce CNAME record. We have applied a fix on our end to mitigate the issue. Please refresh the DNS check in the UI and report back if you are still experiencing any issues.

Try these steps and let us know if this is resolved.


Andy Heinzer thank you a lot! I re-added domain and TXT record and now validation has passed! :)


That worked for me as well.

Thank you for the fix.

@Storeolis Admin 

My guess is something is just off on what was added.  Make sure there are no spaces or wrong characters.  I would suggest removing it and adding it again and seeing if that works.

thank you for reply Brant. I tried to re-add domain and TXT record many times. In order to ensure that there are no extra symbols I tried to copy value from DNS records window's output html (not only by using Copy button from there) and verified that there are no hidden characters in Notepad++ with "Show all symbols" option checked. No luck still. I'm but out of ideas what may go wrong.

@Storeolis Admin let me escalate to Atlassian since you are on a free plan and see if they can take a look at it.

Thank you Brant, will wait for their reply. There is similar issue created week ago by another user: So there is a chance that something got broken in sending domain verification algorithm.


I've got the absolute same issue, the last TXT record fails. And sometimes, when I retry a DNS check, all of them fail.

I've tried recreating the domain many times with no chance (of course I recreated the new TXT record each time).

Loic Le Cardinal, I also sometimes see that all records are red. But when I re-add domain all except last records become green again (last TXT is still red after that). Looks like there is issue with sending domain verification on Jira side.
