SPF verifies the origin of email messages, preventing unauthorized senders from sending messages on your domain's behalf. It establishes rules for accepting and rejecting mail based on the message's origin. For example, if an ISP wants to restrict senders from their network from posing as their customers and sending emails on their behalf, this can be prevented by enabling SPF.
Creating an SPF Record for MessageGears
Here are the steps to set up SPF for MessageGears :
Login to your DNS management console
Navigate to Tools & Settings > DNS Template
You need to edit the DNS TXT record related to SPF
An SPF TXT record for MessageGears will have the following syntax:
mydomain.com TXT v=spf1 v=spf1 include:_spf.messagegears.net -all
Publish this record in your DNS records section for your respective domain.
Note: If you don’t have an SPF record previously for your domain, simply publish the above-mentioned record to enable SPF for outgoing emails using MessageGears. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include MessageGears, as shown below:
Previous SPF record: v=spf1 mx -all
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:_spf.messagegears.net -all
Wait for 72 hours to allow your DNS to process the changes
