How to setup SPF Records

What is an SPF record and why it's needed

Barilliance triggered emails are sent on your behalf from our email service.

As a security measure some email clients will only accept emails if they are sent from an email server on the same domain as the sending address. In order to allow emails to be sent on your behalf from other servers or services, this must be explicitly authorized by an SPF record. SPF records are DNS entries that authorize the sending of emails from different servers on behalf of your website domain.

How to add an SPF record

Including an SPF record is a simple operation which is usually done by a webmaster and takes a few
minutes.

In order to allow Barilliance to send on your behalf, your SPF records need to contain: “include:authsmtp.com “

For example:

v=spf1 include:authsmtp.com ~all

Note that if you already have an SPF record for your domain, you should not create a new record, but you should add "include:authsmtp.com" to your current record. You should only have one SPF record with all your sending domains included. Having multiple SPF record will cause the validation to fail and the emails going to spam.

For example, if your current record is:
v=spf1 a mx ip4:83.206.106.17 ~all

You would need to modify your current record to look like:
v=spf1 a mx ip4:83.206.106.17 include:authsmtp.com ~all

This line is added as a TXT type DNS record:

Usually it takes a new DNS record a few hours to propagate before it is fully published.
