Sender Framework Policy

  • Setting up SPF DNS entries will minimize non-deliveries through outbound.
    • Add the following TXT Records to your Authoritative DNS Server(s):
      • [your domain]. IN TXT "v=spf1 include:spf.[your domain] -all"
      • spf.[your domain]. IN TXT "v=spf1 ip4:69.90.54.0/28 ip4:[your IP allocations] ~all"
        • [your domain] is the domain you use for outgoing mail Note: The Period "." at the end of the domain. Example: test.com.
        • [your IP allocations] are the IP addresses of your own mail servers, in CIDR format. Example: 1.2.3.4/24


  • For example, if your domain is electric-automotive.com, add the following two TXT records:
electric-automotive.com. IN TXT "v=spf1 include:spf.electricautomotive.com -all"
spf.electric-automotive.com. IN TXT "v=spf1 ip4:69.90.54.0/28 ip4:[your IP allocations] ~all"


  • If you need help with more complex SPF records, consult the SPF wizard on the Open SPF website to find out how to add your servers to the SPF entries described above:
