SPF records are used to help prevent email spoofing. They help to ensure that only authorized servers can send emails on behalf of your domain. SPF records can help to improve your email deliverability.

How to Configure SPF for Bullhorn

  • Sign in to your DNS administration interface.
  • Select DNS Template under Tools & Settings
  • You must change the DNS TXT record for SPF.
  • Bullhorn employs the following SPF “a” mechanisms:
  1. a:outbound5.bullhorn.com
  2. a:outbound3.bullhorn.com
  3. a:outbound2.bullhorn.com
  4. a:o1.email.bullhorn.com
  • For Bullhorn, an SPF TXT record will have the following syntax:

mydomain.com TXT v=spf1 a:outbound5.bullhorn.com a:outbound3.bullhorn.com a:outbound2.bullhorn.com a:o1.email.bullhorn.com -all

  • This record should be published in the DNS records section for the relevant domain.

Worth noting: To activate SPF for outgoing emails using Bullhorn if your domain previously lacked an SPF record, all you need to do is publish the aforementioned record. If your DNS already contains an SPF record, you must update it to include Bullhorn as shown below:

Previous SPF record:  v=spf1 include:spf.domain.com -all

Modified SPF record:  v=spf1 include:spf.domain.com a:outbound5.bullhorn.com a:outbound3.bullhorn.com a:outbound2.bullhorn.com a:o1.email.bullhorn.com -all
