SPF is an email authentication standard that protects your domain from spam by providing a way to publish a list of sending sources that are permitted to send emails from your domain. To add Statuspage as a verified sender, follow these steps!
Creating an SPF Record for Statuspage
Here are the steps to set up SPF for Statuspage :
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 Statuspage will have the following syntax:
name.domain.com TXT v=spf1 include:stspg-customer.com -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 Statuspage. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include Statuspage, as shown below:
Previous SPF record: v=spf1 mx -all
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:stspg-customer.com -all
Wait for 24-48 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.
