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 Gandimail

Depending on the services you utilize, GandiMail advises updating the following TXT records to your DNS:

For Gandimail:

@ 10800 IN TXT “v=spf1 include:_mailcust.gandi.net ?all”

For Simple Hosting:

@ 10800 IN TXT “v=spf1 include:_spf.gpaas.net ?all”

For GandiMail + Simple Hosting:

@ 10800 IN TXT “v=spf1 include:_mailcust.gandi.net include:_spf.gpaas.net ?all”

In each of the examples above, the Host/Name field must be filled in with “@,” the TTL must be 10800, and the resource type must be TXT. For a single domain, DO NOT publish more than one SPF record. Simply update an existing entry to incorporate Gandimail if one already exists.

Worth noting: Only release the above-mentioned simple hosting TXT record if you send emails from your website (e.g. via contact forms).
