    I'm trying to delete a TXT record from the command line, but I can't seem to get the syntax right. This is for a local DNS block list script I'm working on. All the records are in the form (which would list the IP, with an TXT record that gives some details about the block. I can add and remove A records, and add TXT records just fine.

    I add the TXT record with:
    /usr/local/psa/bin/dns -a dnsbl.example.com -txt "some detail" -domain

    /usr/local/psa/bin/dns -d dnsbl.example.com -txt "" -domain (or with -txt "some detail")
    gives "Unable del record in DNS server: unable find DNS record"

    The documentation isn't clear at all, so hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction.
