How can I add an SPF Record for my domain?

To prevent fraudulent senders/phishing abuse, you can create what are known as SPF records (sender policy framework) for a domain. The SPF record of a domain defines which mail servers/IP addresses are allowed to send e-mails from the particular sender domain.

  1. Log into your Control Panel and go to «Domains» at the top of the page.
  2. The overview shows a list of your domains.
