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.

A validated email address is necessary to send emails using Flexmail since it verifies that the owner of the email address has given permission to send emails from that address. Flexmail advises domain owners to implement SPF authentication for outbound emails in order to do this. Here’s how to go about it:

How to Configure SPF for Flexmail

  1. Sign to your Flexmail account
  2. Select Settings > Sender Validation in your account.
  3. Select Add a new sender button to get a new address validated. Utilize the Resend Approval Email option that appears next to the existing email address that hasn’t yet received approval.

Worth noting: The domain name used in the above image are illustrations

  1. Select Add a new sender, fill in the email address which needs to be validated and select Request approval
  1. The owner of the email address will receive a verification email after selecting the Request approval button, and they can authorize the validation.
  1. You can confirm that your email address has been verified by looking for a tick icon that appears before the email address once the domain owner selects Verify my email address in the confirmation email.
