Step 2

To create a new SPF record, go to the section Add a 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.

Enter your domain into the Name field.

Enter the desired TTL value into the TTL field. The recommended value is 14400.

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

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