            SPF Records

            Creating a new SPF Record

            Access the admin panel that is provided to you by your domain registrar to update your DNS record. 
            Sender Policy Framework (“SPF”) records allow you to determine which servers can send email on behalf of your domain. An SPF record is not required to use with our cloud service, however, can help improve email delivery rates by reducing the chance that the emails you send will be seen as spam. Additional information on SPF is available on the Sender Policy Framework Project website.

            You can check to see if your domain already has an SPF Record using Scott Kitterman's SPF Record Testing Tool.

            If your domain does not have an SPF record, you should create an SPF record as displayed below.

            Modifying an SPF Record

            If your domain has an existing SPF record, you can simply add the value below to your existing record
