How to Set Up SPF for SocketLabs?




Built from the ground up, SPF is an easy-to-use, comprehensive solution for protecting your business from malicious impersonation. By requiring a firm's authorized users to send content using their firm’s designated IP, a higher level of message protection is afforded to the end-user or recipient. Confer with your IT or legal team to determine if SPF is a good fit for your company.

To setup SPF for SocketLabs, follow these steps:


Creating an SPF Record for SocketLabs

Here are the steps to set up SPF for SocketLabs :

  • 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 SocketLabs will have the following syntax: 

mydomain.com    TXT    v=spf1 include:email-od.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 SocketLabs. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include SocketLabs, as shown below:


Previous SPF record:  v=spf1 mx ~all

Modified SPF record:  v=spf1 mx include:email-od.com ~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.
