An SPF record is a type of Domain Name System (DNS) record that identifies which mail servers are authorized to send email on behalf of your domain. SPF records help to prevent email spoofing by verifying that the email message is coming from a legitimate source. When a mail server receives an email, the mail server can check the SPF record of the domain to verify that the email is coming from an authorized source. If the email is not coming from an authorized source, the mail server can reject the email or mark it as spam.

How to Configure SPF for Netsuite

If you use Netsuite to send emails on your behalf, Netsuite advises that SPF alignment is not a necessity along with your DMARC policy record. In most situations, assuming DKIM for Netsuite is already configured, you should be good. This will increase the deliverability of your emails and reduce email bounces.

Nevertheless, you should only think about setting up an SPF record if your email receiving server instructs you to do so.

Sadly, Netsuite support does not give users access to the internal IP addresses used to send emails so they can add those addresses to their SPF record to request authorisation. Alternatively, you can use the following domain to reference Netsuite SPF in your DNS: sent-via.netsuite.com

To find a list of Netsuite IP addresses to add in your record, run a DNS lookup on this site. But, be careful to keep an eye out for any Nersuite IP adjustments (in case they modify or add to their IPs) so you can adjust your record as necessary.

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