Last night, I added a DNS record to my domain to allow Mailchimp to send emails as an official/authorized source.

It doesn't seem to have totally worked, Mailchimp is sending emails but they are not being received - I believe this is because my SPF record is not properly authorizing Mailchimp's servers to send on behalf of my domain.

I did a domain check at mxtoolbox and it's showing "Multiple SPF Records Found":

enter image description here

Is it the ~all and -all that is causing an issue? It should be possible to have multiple TXT DNS records, right? Am I messing up the way I have added these TXT records?

I'd like to continue to be able to send email via Google/Gmail (this is working) but I also would like to authorize Mailchimp to send emails on behalf of my domain (hosted with GoDaddy)

Any suggestions for the setup I am trying to accomplish here? Thank you so much!

You can indeed have multiple txt records however the complaint is multiple spf records. If you want to relay email through both providers you need to consolidate into a single record

     v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com include:seevers.mcsv.net ~all

In any event you should have only 1 txt record that starts "v=spf1"
