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

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.

Example: v=spf1 ip4:IP-1 ip4:IP-2 ip4:IP-3 +a +mx ~all

where IP-1, IP-2, IP-3 are IP addresses of additional servers.
