How to Create an SPF Record

An SPF record is a list of servers that can send emails from your domain, and how to process emails sent from other servers. You can add an SPF record to your domain host.

How to Find an SPF Record in Your SendPulse Account

In the "SMTP" section, open the "SMTP Settings" page.

The SPF record is on the "General" tab.

Step 3. Add a name for the record

In the "Host" field enter "@" or leave it empty. Some providers may require the name of your domain here.

Step 4. Add the value record

Put the SPF record from the SendPulse account into the "TXT Value" field.

If you send emails through other SMTP servers as well, add IP addresses of all servers into the SPF-record.

Note, you can only have one SPF record per domain. If you send emails through other SMTP servers as well, add the IP addresses of all the servers in the existing SPF record.

Example: v=spf1 +a +mx ~all
