SPF lets your domain tell the world which email servers you trust to send emails on your behalf. By creating a record in the DNS with all of the mail servers that are permitted to send mail, you can thwart spammers who your users might consider to be fake.
Creating SPF record for StreamSend
Here are the steps to set up SPF for StreamSend :
- 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 StreamSend will have the following syntax:
mydomain.com TXT v=spf1 include:spf.mailengine1.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 StreamSend. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include StreamSend, as shown below:
Previous SPF record: v=spf1 mx -all
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:spf.mailengine1.com -all
- Save changes
- Wait for 72 hours to allow your DNS to process the changes
