Unable to verify domain ownership so cannot set up email

Over a week ago, I worked with a GoDaddy tech to set up my DNS records.  I have a domain with email thru GoDaddy connected to my blog at WordPress.  I am trying to activate my mailbox via the Email & Productivity page, and am at the Verify Domain stage.  When I click 'I updated these settings. Check Please!' I get an error that the settings could not be verified.  It has been over a week so they've had plenty of time to propagate.  I must have something wrong somewhere, and could use some help resolving the issue.  I'd appreciate any help!  Here are my nslookup results:

 

Non-authoritative answer:
lobespierre.com MX preference = 0, mail exchanger = lobespierre-com.mail.protection.outlook.com
lobespierre.com internet address = 192.0.78.25
lobespierre.com internet address = 192.0.78.24
lobespierre.com text =

"@ v=spf1 include:spf.protecftion.outlook.com -all"
lobespierre.com text =

"@ MS=ms64084144"
lobespierre.com
primary name server = ns1.wordpress.com
responsible mail addr = hostmaster.wordpress.com
serial = 2005071858
refresh = 14400 (4 hours)
retry = 7200 (2 hours)
expire = 604800 (7 days)
default TTL = 300 (5 mins)
lobespierre.com nameserver = ns2.wordpress.com
lobespierre.com nameserver = ns3.wordpress.com
lobespierre.com nameserver = ns1.wordpress.com

 

Thank you!

Lisa

Re: Unable to verify domain ownership so cannot set up email

Hi @lmboat0216.

Looking at this, it looks like the TXT records might be incorrect. The records themselves shouldn't include the "@" portion. The "@" should be the name/host used for the record, but should not be in the Value or Points To portion.

Could you explain that more? It's tellin me to enter the "@" symbol for the name?
