Spam is a big problem for everyone. If you add the SPF record to your domain, then add multiple email addresses to it - you will be able to stop most unwanted mail before it reaches your users. This will also aid in ant-spoofing campaigns.
Creating SPF record for MailRoute
Here are the steps to set up SPF for MailRoute :
- 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 MailRoute will have the following syntax:
mydomain.com TXT v=spf1 include:spf.mailroute.net -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 MailRoute. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include MailRoute, as shown below:
Previous SPF record: v=spf1 mx -all
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:spf.mailroute.net -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.
