Your service provider is now using MailChannels Cloud to send email from the hosting server on which your account is located. Correct Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records need to be configured in your DNS settings to ensure that Internet receivers will properly identify and receive your email. This article describes the DNS records you must add.

DNS Records

The following records are needed for SPF to work correctly. Replace example.com with your own domain name:

Location

  Type

  Value

example.com

  TXT

  v=spf1 a mx include:relay.mailchannels.net  ?all




If you already have an SPF record, simply add include:relay.mailchannels.net to this entry. Make sure to add it BEFORE the “all” mechanism as “all” always matches and typically goes at the end of the SPF record.
