After updating DNS records, please allow up to 24-48 hours for the records to propagate and show as Verified in SendGrid. If you've waited that time period, and they still are not propagating, please don't hesitate to reach out to Support via the Support Portal.

Notice: If you have multiple Domain Authentication entries for the same domain in your SendGrid account (Settings > Sender Authentication), make sure to remove all the ones that are Pending or Failed and leave only the one(s) that state Verified.
