E4ward with afraid.org?


Anyone using E4ward with a domain at afraid.org? My Google searching says its a good way to be able to forward e-mail for additional domains.

I've added the mx record as they stated

http://newhelp.e4ward.com/doc.html#id8

and I think I added the txt record correctly.
but the test link when they say to add your domain says the txt record doesn't exist.

Code:
mydomain.net	[ add ]
	mydomain.net (G)	A	75.118.170.43
	mydomain.net (G)	MX	10:mx1.e4ward.com
	mydomain.net (G)	MX	10:mx2.e4ward.com
	mydomain.net (G)	MX	10:mx3.e4ward.com
	ftp.mydomain.net (G)	A	75.118.170.43
	irc.mydomain.net (G)	A	75.118.170.43
	mail.mydomain.net (G)	A	75.118.170.43
	txt.mydomain.net (G)	TXT	"e4ward,myaccount"
	www.mydomain.net (G)	A	75.118.170.43
Now their instructions say to add 'e4ward,youraccountname' to the txt record unquoted but afraid.org says the data must be in quotes for a txt record.

Anyone can point me what I'm doing wrong?

Basically I pay hosting for a .com domain and use afraid.org wit a ddns client for a .net domain to get into my home. I wanted to get a real ssl cert for the .net domain from say startssl.com and found several pages like http://helmingstay.blogspot.com/2013...-free-ssl.html telling me how to do it. But I can't get e4ward to register my domain.

enine,

>the data must be in quotes for a txt record.

We've changed the domain validation to accept "e4ward,myaccount" in single or double quotes. Please try again and you can contact us directly at support1 at e4ward.com if you have further issues.

Thanks,
E4ward.com
