Step 3

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

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 @ into the Host Record field.

Enter the desired TTL value into the TTL field. We recommend to leave the default value 14400.

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

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