Yes, I think the whole CNAME is useless here anyway.

These were the recommendations of this service provider, mailgun though..

Thx, Jukka

Aihe: Re: CNAME / TXT

If you uncomment that mg CNAME you end up with a CNAME mx and TXT at the same node in to the DNS tree and that is illegal. That is why you get the error "cname and other data". The mx and txt are the other data.

Only when I comment out the two lines in the end of the named.harriot, it goes through and BIND load the zone. With those two lines, get the following:
