An SPF (Sender Policy Framework) record is a type of DNS (Domain Name System) record used for email authentication.
SPF allows the receiving mail server to check during mail delivery that an email claiming to come from a specific domain is submitted by an IP address authorized by that domain’s administrators. The list of authorized sending hosts and IP addresses for a domain is published in the DNS records for that domain.
Because Leap is sending “from” your personal domain email address, your server may reject it as spam or phishing. Adding the leap domain in your SPF records will allow these emails to go through.
To ensure that messages to your customers are delivered when sent by Leap, it’s strongly recommended that you add the leaptodigital.com domain to your SPF record.
Add SPF record
SPF Records are added to the domain’s DNS records as TXT entries. Your domain’s DNS settings are most often controlled by your website’s host or registrar. Depending on how your domain is set up, there are a couple permutations on how to do this.
No SPF Record Entry
If you do not have an SPF record in your DNS (MOST USERS):
Create a TXT record with this value: “v=spf1 include:leaptodigital.com -all”.
Fewer Than 10 SPF Record Entries
If you have an existing SPF record with fewer than 10 entries:
Add “include:leaptodigital.com -all” to the existing TXT record.
More Than 10 SPF Record Entries
If you have an existing SPF record with 10 or more entries:
Create multiple TXT records that authorize all the desired domains for email sending.
The below is for EXAMPLE purposes only.
v=spf1 a mx a:mail.domain.com a:mail.domain.ie a:mailman.example.com -all
v=spf1 stamps.example.com mx:anothermailman.example.com include:anotherdomain.com -all
v=spf1 ip4:192.168.0.1 ip4:192.168.0.2 -all
Then add this to the base domain:
v=spf1 include:spf1.example.com include:spf2.example.com include:spf3.example.com -all
