When you configure Sender Policy Framework, your email recipients check if your domain is listed in the SPF TXT record. On finding it, SPF passes for that email, else, it fails. No matter which email vendor you’re using, SPF will protect your domain against impersonation.
Creating SPF record for Greenhouse
Here are the steps to set up SPF for Greenhouse :
- 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 Greenhouse will have the following syntax:
mydomain.com TXT v=spf1 include:mg-spf.greenhouse.io -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 Greenhouse. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include Greenhouse, as shown below:
Previous SPF record: v=spf1 mx -all
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:mg-spf.greenhouse.io -all
- Save changes
- Wait for 72 hours to allow your DNS to process the changes
