Improving Email Delivery with an SPF Record


Improving Email Delivery with an SPF Record

If you’ve been having issues with email delivery, this guide is worth reading.

An SPF record is now a very important record, which allows an email service to know from which service emails can be sent. Without an SPF record, the recipient cannot know whether the incoming mail came from the correct source or a spammer. Nowadays, many parties block email delivery if this important record is missing. You can also get this setting change from us as additional work, according to our price list.

The record is added as follows:

1. Select Domain Settings – DNS Records

2. Choose the domain to manage and select the records.

3. Choose to create a new one.

4. Leave the subdomain field empty. The following value goes into the text field:
v=spf1 include:spf.shellit.org ~all

In this field, you need to mention all email services that forward mails from this domain. The example only mentions our mail service, but if, for instance, you use an email marketing service, it should also be mentioned in this record. Multiple destinations can be added to the record. Here are a few examples:

Using only our service:
v=spf1 include:spf.shellit.org ~all

Using our service and Microsoft 365:
v=spf1 include:spf.shellit.org include:spf.protection.outlook.com ~all

5. After clicking the Save button, the record will be saved and will be in use within a few hours on average.
