How to Set Up SPF for FreshMail?


SPF prevents email spoofing by enabling an SPF record on your domain. An SPF record is a TXT DNS record that authorizes mail servers to send mail on your behalf. If you do not have an SPF record set up, recipients are unable to verify that incoming mail is sent from you.

Creating SPF record for FreshMail

Here are the steps to set up SPF for FreshMail :

  • 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 FreshMail will have the following syntax:    TXT  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 FreshMail. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include FreshMail, 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.
