Domain Email SPF Settings

by Ned Schumann last modified Mar 29, 2016 01:09 PM

Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is used by mail servers to validate that email purporting to come from a domain really does originate from that domain.

The SPF record is added in the Domain Control Panel using the DNS Manager. It is entered without a name, just the txt type, then the SPF record in quotes. It will appear with the @ symbol as shown below.

The base SPF record should appear as follows:

@

IN TXT

"v=spf1 ip4:69.49.98.0/24 ip4:149.115.68.0/24 ~all"


 

If other mail servers such as Gmail are used to send mail, then those server IP address blocks should be added to the SPF record.
