What is an SPF record and how do I add one?

An SPF record (Sender Policy Framework record) is a specific type of TXT record which is used to prevent receiving forged email.

By adding an SPF record into your DNS configuration, any mail servers receiving email allegedly from you will check it has come from a trusted source. The trusted sources are provided by the SPF record which you have set up.

For help on how to create the SPF/TXT record and for any further information, visit the Open SPF website and SPF wizard.

You can add the SPF record as a TXT record in your control panel. However, if you wish to add the record specifically as an SPF record, you are unable to do this through your control panel and will need to contact to our support team.
