Add your SPF record at your domain provider

Protect against spoofing & phishing, and help prevent your messages sent from Filemail being marked as spam.

To turn on Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for your domain, add a Domain Name System (DNS) TXT record at your domain provider.

When adding your SPF record at your domain provider, keep in mind:

  • The field names in these steps might be different for your domain provider. DNS TXT record field names vary for domain providers.

  • Some domain providers require the SPF record value be enclosed in quotes. Check your provider's support information for information on SPF record format.

  • After adding an SPF record, it can take up to 48 hours for SPF authentication to start working.

Add your SPF record

Sign in to the management console for your domain host and locate the page where you update DNS TXT records for your domain. For help on how to find this page, check the documentation for your domain provider.

Enter these values on the page or form for your domain provider’s TXT records:
