Sender Policy Framework (SPF)
For best results we recommend that you create a Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record for your domain. An SPF record is a type of Domain Name Service (DNS) record that identifies which mail servers are permitted to send email on behalf of your domain.
The purpose of an SPF record is to prevent spammers from sending messages with forged From addresses at your domain. Recipients can refer to the SPF record to determine whether a message purporting to be from your domain comes from an authorized mail server.
When using Elastic Email as your SMTP Relay set your SPF record to the following:
"v=spf1 mx include:_spf.elasticemail.com ~all"
If you already have an SPF record for you domain add: include:_spf.elasticemail.com to your existing record.
