domains.live.com - TXT Record to avoid JUNK. Can?

I have transferred my domain beachtravelmaldives.com to Yola recently and created mail accounts via Hotmail and all is set up. The thing is when I send a mail from one of my Email addresses, the sender gets it from the junk. Since this is a bit embarrassing, I searched the domains.live.com for a solution and found out that I need to create a TXT Record (v=spf1 include:hotmail.com ~all) which I tried but is showing an error. Could some one help me out?

There is no option for a TXT as the users can create among three types of Records (A,CNAME,MX) only..So only Yola can do this.

Hi there,
I'm sorry this has not yet been sorted for you. I am going to look into it and get some help with adding the record or finding out if it has been added as of yet. I'm sorry for the wait on this and will get back to you shortly.

Thank you :-) Btw, will not there be a way I could confirm to myself that TXT record is added as I cannot see it under the advanced domain settings? Anyway, your confirmation is enough but still ... :-)

Hello beachtravelsMaster - the TXT record has been added but you won't see it in the Advanced Domain Settings as we haven't made a way for it to be displayed there. This is something we still need to implement in that area.
