How to Set Up SPF for Sharpspring?


A staple virtually all brands use, SPF protects against impersonation. Basically, an organization will send someone an email from their domain's name. In order to prevent organizations from sending emails from a domain to which they do not belong, the Sender Policy Framework (SPF) includes a list of authorized IP addresses that are allowed to send emails on your behalf from your domain.

Enabling SPF for Sharpsping

  • Click on User Menu > Settings in SharpSpring's top toolbar.
  • Click on Company Email Settings, located under Features in the left panel.
  • Select DKIM & Sending Domains tab.
  • Verify your domain.
  • Click on Set Up DKIM once your domain is verified.
  • Now select Get My CNAME Settings.
  • Add the CNAME records generated by Sharpspring for your domain. Sharpspring provides the following types of CNAME records:
