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.
To setup SPF on SMTP2GO, you have to follow three major steps :
1. Adding a new domain on SMTP2GO
- Login to your SMTP2GO account and go to the control panel.
- Navigate to settings and go to Sender domains.
- Copy the CNAME record generated and publish it on your DNS.2. Setting up a new DNS record
- Login to your DNS management console and navigate to the section where new records are created.
- Select the resource type CNAME and publish the copied CNAME records from SMTP2GO.
- Click on Save.
3. DNS verification
- Login to SMTP2GO and confirm that your domain has a verified status.
SMTP2GO handles SPF configuration on its own once you add your domain. You don’t need to configure SPF manually.
