How to Set Up SPF for Drip?

October 11, 2023  |  < 1 min read

SPF records help improve email deliverability by helping to prevent email spoofing. By including an SPF record in your DNS settings, you can help to ensure that email sent from your domain is not marked as spam by email providers.

How to Configure SPF for your Custom Sending Domain in Drip

Customers are more likely to open emails from you when they come from a custom domain rather than from spam. To modify your sending domain and set up a custom domain on Drip follow these steps:

  • Select Change Sending Domain
  • Click on the custom domain you’d like to use for sending emails
  • Click Next
  • To post on your DNS, Drip will send you a list of CNAME records.
  • Select I’ve added these records after publishing the records on your DNS.
  • Drip then verifies the existence of the CNAME records.

If you operate with any of the following domain registrars, you may easily publish your CNAME records by contacting your provider to gain access to your DNS: Amazon Web Services, Bluehost, Cloudflare, DreamHost, GoDaddy, Google Domain, HostGator, Namecheap. To request SPF and DKIM TXT records in their place, you must get in touch with Drip’s support team if you are working with domain registrars who do not offer CNAME records.

With Skysnag, you can easily manage Drip’s SPF records without having to go to your DNS. This allows Drip’s SPF record to propagate instantly, and autonomously always pass SPF alignment.
