How to Set Up SPF for MessageGears?

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:    TXT   v=spf1 v=spf1 -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 -all

  • Save changes 

  • Wait for 72 hours to allow your DNS to process the changes 

Finally, you can look up your record using our SPF record lookup tool, and enable DMARC for your domains: take a DMARC trial.
