How to Set Up SPF for AOL Mail?

An SPF record can save your domain from spam and phishing by allowing you to keep a record of your authorized sources. AOL highly recommends their customers set up SPF for their respective domains. Here’s how you do it: 

Creating SPF record for AOL

Here are the steps to set up SPF for AOL :

  • Login to your DNS management console 
  • Navigate to Tools & Settings > DNS Template
  • You need to edit the DNS TXT record related to SPF
  • sample SPF TXT record is shown below:  TXT  v=spf1 -all

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 Tapfiliate or please collect the SPF mechanism for your service provider. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include Tapfiliate or other source you are using, as shown below:

Previous SPF record:  v=spf1 -all

Modified SPF record:  v=spf1 -all

                   (This is just a sample record for the sending source Tapfiliate)

  • 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 to minimize spoofing attacks by taking a free DMARC trial.
