DNS TXT records are used for SPF entries in order to prevent SPAM on
the internet. Currently, there is no ability to monitor
TXT records with a Site24x7 DNS Monitor. We need to be able to
monitor a DNS TXT record to see if a sub-string is found in the
results in order to validate that our mail server IP address is in the
SPF text of a TXT record.
Would it be possible to create the ability to monitor TXT records
with the DNS Monitor? Also, would it be possible to search for a
sub-string in the results of a TXT record's value?

We would like to be able to search for the above bolded text in a
