How to add SPF to the “From” domain in MAX accounts? MAX
In February 2024, Gmail and Yahoo will introduce requirements affecting email deliverability. Authenticate your domain with DKIM and add a DMARC policy. Lastly, ensure your new “From” address is used in all your new, scheduled, or automated emails.
For additional details on these modifications, refer to our blog post: Gmail and Yahoo’s Authentication Changes: All You Need to Know.
You can have an unlimited number of From addresses, and in multiple domains. Each email address can be used multiple times with different names. Each new domain you use with your From addresses needs to be authenticated with DKIM, SPF and DMARC.
There are two possible scenarios in GetResponse MAX.
Using your sending domain as your From email address
Authentication is done when you redirect the domain to our nameservers, and there are no extra steps required. You will see the following information next to your “from” address:
Using a different domain as your From email address
You will need to authenticate the domain with SPF, DKIM and DMARC.
Here you can find instructions how to authenticate with DKIM and here how to set a DMARC record.
To add an SPF record to your domain, you need to add the following TXT record to your domain’s DNS:
v=spf1 a mx include:_spf.yoursendingdomain.com -all
As the record name, you should use the From domain for which the SPF is being added.
In the value row, you need to use your sending domain.
For example, if your from domain is
myshop.com, and your sending domain is
mailing.myshop.com, the record would look like this:
v=spf1 a mx include:_spf.mailing.myshop.com -all
Please ensure that you only have a single SPF record for each domain, since having more than one will cause the SPF authentication to fail. If you already have an SPF record, you can merge the values into a single entry.
