How to Setup SPF for SendGrid?

The Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an email authentication system that detects forged sender addresses while the email is being delivered. SPF, on the other hand, is confined to detecting a forged sender claim in the email’s envelope, which is used when it bounces.

Follow these simple steps to set up SPF on your SendGrid account :

  • If you don’t have a published SPF record for your domain, use the value shown below to create a new one :

v=spf1 include:sendgrid.net ~all

  •  In case you have a published SPF record for your domain, you’ll need to tweak it with the TXT value shown below :

include:sendgrid.net ~all

After tweaking the value, your record should look something like this : 

v=spf1 include:emailauth.io.com include:sendgrid.net ~all

  • Now, log in to your DNS console and publish the new  SPF record to complete setting up SPF for SendGrid.

Check your newly published SPF record using our SPF validator tool.
