DNS TXT Record - Name contains invalid characters

I am trying to add a TXT DKIM record following the mailjet.com guidelines. As hostname, according to the instructions I should enter "mailjet._domainkey.mydomain.com." but the Linode settings return an error that Name contains invalid characters. What should I do?

The problem here looks like you're adding "mailjet._domainkey.mydomain.com." with the quotes into the hostname field. I was able to recreate this by adding that to my TXT record and I got the same error message Name contains invalid characters. After removing the quotes I was able to add that record with any errors.

If you're adding this with the quotes, try again without them and that should resolve your issue.
