Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records are part of a domain's DNS records which identify specific mail servers that are permitted to send email for a domain. The purpose of SPF records are to prevent email spam by detecting email spoofing.
Follow the steps below to create an SPF record for your domain:
- Sign in to your domain registrar
- Locate the area where you update DNS records
- Create a TXT Record containing:
- Type : TXT
- Host : @
- Value : v=spf1 include:_spf.hushmail.com -all
If you are using third-party mailers such as Mailgun or Mailchimp, you'll need to include their server information along with Hushmail's in one TXT record. For example, if you're using Mailgun, your TXT record will look like this:
v=spf1 include:_spf.hushmail.com include:mailgun.org -all
Once you have created the TXT record be sure to save your changes. If you have any questions about configuring your SPF records, please contact us.
Note: For the Host field, some domain registrars require you leave that field blank.
