How to set up SPF for Zix?

October 11, 2023  |  < 1 min read

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 Zix

You must include Zix transmitting domains or IP addresses in your SPF record if you wish to integrate ZixGateway with your current Nimbus Logic configuration. You can either include:


ip4: ip4: 

In the event that your domain already contains an SPF record, for instance:

Previous SPF recordv=spf1 -all

Modified SPF recordv=spf1 -all

Worth noting: Refrain from adding more than one SPF record for a single domain.

How to produce SPF for Zix

  • Sign to your DNS management console
  • Generate a TXT record for your domain
  • Add the Zix domains or IPs according to the solutions you use to your existing record or generate new
  • Save modifications 
  • Allow your DNS to process the adjustments for 24-48 hours.

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