verifying aws ses by adding cname records not working !

In order to verify my domain in amazon ses email service i must add a txt,cname records in the dns records
theres a one TXT record which works fine and the domain is verified .
but when it come to DKIM signing which requires adding 3 CNAME records not working at all 
i tries many approaches like removing the domain at the end of the cname name bc it may get appended twice
like  fsirqevb1z74yc4fj7r2hta5x6f2as6i._domainkey instead of fsirqevb1z74yc4fj7r2hta5x6f2as6i._domainkey.mydomain.com same for the other 2 with .5h ttl
but nothing works so far! should i wait for 3 days although the txt record works

Everything looks good if you could click the pencil on one of the cname records and scroll to the end of the box (host/name) - I would also just double check there are no "spaces" before the start or end from copying from AWS - everything looks good

 

The other thing to do is export the zone as a text file and just double check it there

1) you only need the UNIQUE._domainkey  as the GoDaddy DNS will add the domain automatically

 

2) I have about 15-20 clients using AWS SES and I've never setup DKIM - it's something you can do but it isn't required.

Re: verifying aws ses by adding cname records not working !

I tried only the UNIQUE._domainkey in the cname by putting the name in host and value in points to, but nothing works the DKIM is still pending .

some emails like yahoo must be DKIM signed i guess to be able to send !

I've never had an issue with Yahoo with AWS SES - but that being said - what is your domain?

When I look up fsirqevb1z74yc4fj7r2hta5x6f2as6i._domainkey.anamehani.com in a DNS dig for a CNAME it isn't showing as setup - if you want to post a screen capture of the Amazon screen and your DNS configuration I can verify if I see anything off
