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 helps to prevent email spoofing and improve email deliverability. 

How to Set Up SPF for SendGrid

You must configure SPF and DKIM for SendGrid in order to allow it to send emails on your domain’s behalf. Follow the instructions below to set up your SPF record with SendGrid or change your existing SPF record to add SendGrid and increase email deliverability:

  • Use our free SPF record generator to instantly create an SPF record that is error-free. The new record will have the following value and be a DNS TXT (text) record:

include:sendgrid.n

  • If your domain currently has an SPF record, you must update it to include the special SPF inclusion for your SendGrid account. Your current SPF record is, as an illustration:

v=spf1 include:sendgrid.net ~all

  • When you make an update or modification, the record will appear as in the following example:

v=spf1 include:powerdmarc.com include:sendgrid.net ~all

  • Finally, to set up SPF for SendGrid, sign into your DNS management interface and publish this SPF record there.
