Step 2

To create a new SPF record, go to the bottom of the page until you find the option to add a new DNS record.
Note: if you already see a TXT record with a value beginning with 'v=spf1' then edit that record rather than adding a new one.

Select the TXT option from the Type drop-down menu.

Enter @ into the Name field.

Enter the SPF record that we recommend for you into the Value field. You can find your recommended SPF record from the Sender Domains page in your SMTP2GO App.

Select the Automatic option from the TTL drop-down menu.
