An SPF record is a DNS record that authorizes mail servers to send mail on behalf of your domain. This is important because many email servers won't accept mail from servers whose domain names aren't listed in your SPF records.
Creating an SPF record for TransIP
- Go to the ' Domain & Hosting ' tab
- Click on the domain for which you want to configure SPF.
- Scroll down to Advanced Domain Management > DNS
- Here you’ll find an overview of your TransIP SPF record
- An SPF TXT record for TransIP will have the following syntax:
mydomain.com TXT v=spf1 include:_spf.transip.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 TransIP. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include TransIP, as shown below:
Previous SPF record: v=spf1 mx -all
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:_spf.transip.com -all
- Save changes
- Wait for 72 hours to allow your DNS to process the changes
