I'll go ahead and try it out with a SLD and see what's going on, that may actually be it.

Decided to do thee email on thhis mercenary forum instead of skyinclude - since it is custom name servers to Fernando's service, also

Fernando is working on adding MX records on his Sinpapeles service - maybe some cross-promotion opportunities for you 2? i can help bridge.

But for now got an error - but Rithvik said maybe your service isn't recognizing SLD? can you check

when doing it - got this error:

Invalid MX record.
Your MX record should look something like this:

handshake.mercenary. 300 IN MX 0 hmail.app.

Rithvik said to ask you?
I just got me@sebastian.rasor registered, go ahead and try yours again!

This is probably cutting it close for a "Site" but I'm currently working on a service to easily send and receive emails from your handshake name. If you're interested in trying this out and helping me work out the kinks, create an MX record pointing towards hmail.app and respond to this thread with your desired email address. I'll contact you with how to get set up from there.
Thank for helping out!
I got THE perfect name for this service: .dMail/

The registration script now uses the authoritative name server for a given email to check the MX and TXT records. This should mean that once you set the records you can verify them instantly!

That is pretty great! For now, I'm keeping the service on standard DNS though, hosting it on standard DNS greatly reduces the likelihood that our emails are marked as spam. I can even send messages to Gmail accounts and they aren't automatically junked!

That is huge !
But...Will it be like that for long?
I see people registering tld’s like googleauthenticator/ , Microsoftsupport/ ...So it may lead to people being spammed and tricked🤷‍♂️....and soon they will be marked as spam!

Would love your inputs❤️🙏

So for things like that, there is a level of manual review that is implemented. I've got a cronjob set up that emails me every day with a list of accounts that has signed up, so if I see any email addresses that are obviously about to be used for phishing or scamming, they'll be removed immediately.

Michaels-Air-3:~ michaelmichelini$ ssh register@hmail.app
What email would you like to register?
> forum@handshake.mercenary
dig: couldn't get address for '': not found
Could not locate authoritative name server; Results may be cached.
To verify that you own handshake.mercenary please create the following TXT record:

When you have set the record you can (c)heck for it or (q)uit.

Turns out that I was validating TXT records wrong, go ahead and give it a try again!
