CNAME record isn't picked up by CM

I've created a DNS record, type of CNAME with the "" reference. When I do a DNS lookup from:, I get:

post.ourdomain.ext.    CNAME    IN    86400
ourdomain.ext.    NS    IN    86400    ournameserver.ext.
ourdomain.ext.    NS    IN    86400    ournameserver.ext.
ournameserver.ext.    A    IN    86400    IP
ournameserver.ext.    A    IN    86400    IP

So, it should be okay. But still, campaign monitor tells me differently, it shows the old CNAME record. It has been over 24 hours now....

Depending on when your server refreshes depends on how long it takes but, yeh, anything over 24 hours and I start to get annoyed to!

The cname looks correct. . although mine displays only the subdomain element in your case post when I administer the DNS. . .

I could be wrong but I do believe your CNAME record has verified now, at least I see one active and verified in your account. Sometimes it can just take a while to propagate and be picked up by our servers. If you're still having problems get in touch with support and we can take a look and see if we can shed any light.
