The Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an email authentication system, created to detect email spoofing—when someone tricks you into thinking they sent you a legitimate email from a different domain. SPF does this by authenticating incoming mail from your domain. It also helps prevent unauthorized users from sending email from your domain or IP address.
Creating SPF record for turboSMTP
Here are the steps to set up SPF for turboSMTP :
- 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 turboSMTP will have the following syntax:
mydomain.com TXT v=spf1 include:turbo-smtp.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 turboSMTP. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include turboSMTP, as shown below:
Previous SPF record: v=spf1 mx -all
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:turbo-smtp.com -all
- Save changes
- Wait for 72 hours to allow your DNS to process the changes
