SPF stands for Sender Policy Framework. It is a TXT DNS record, which ensures mail servers will only accept emails you send from a list of trusted servers you set up using SPF records. This ensures that only your own email server can deliver mail to these addresses.
Creating an SPF Record for Mixpanel
Here are the steps to set up SPF for Mixpanel :
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 Mixpanel will have the following syntax:
name.domain.com TXT v=spf1 include:datadrivenemail.com
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 Mixpanel. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include Mixpanel, as shown below:
Previous SPF record: v=spf1 mx -all
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:datadrivenemail.com
Wait for 24-48 hours to allow your DNS to process the changes
