SPF Setup

What is SPF Authentication?

SPF stands for Sender Policy Framework. It is an authentication method that will allow specific email servers to send emails from your domain. 

It is important that you add the SPF record in your domain in order to send emails with APSIS One's email tool.



Why is it important?

Sender Policy Framework prevents forged emails from being sent from an illegitimate source, impersonating a domain.

It will not stop spam or junk emails, but it does allow domain owners to confirm and legitimise specific servers to send emails in their name and behalf.

If an illegitimate source was to send emails with your domain, it would be categorised as spam by email clients thanks to your existing SPF record authorising the APSIS One server.




Setup Guide

How to setup SPF Authentication

1. Get in touch with your development team, since this will require medium technical skills.


2. Log in to your existing domain's account.


3. Find your domain management section and locate your DNS settings.


3. Paste the following line into a new TXT record and add it to your DNS:

v=spf1 mx include:_spf.apsisone.com -all


If you have set up different email servers before, these should remain in your SPF record.


4. That's it! Next time you send emails, APSIS One will be recognised as a trusted server.
