Step 3

To create a new SPF record, go to the section Add a custom DNS record to example.com.
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.

Leave the Name field blank.

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

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.
