Using MarketingPro's Server - SPF Records for Email Success

If you're using MarketingPro's server to send email you can reduce the chances that your emails will be identified as SPAM by adding MarketingPro's SPF record to your domain. Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records allow domain owners to indicate which IP addresses or servers are authorized to send email on their behalf. Adding MarketingPro to your domain's SPF records will help ensure that SPAM checking services recognize MarketingPro's email server as authorized. If a SPAM checking service recognizes a sending server as authorized, they will not block emails from reaching email recipients.

What is the purpose of the SPF Record?

The purpose of the SPF record is to prevent spammers from sending email messages with forged "From" email addresses at your domain or using your email address to send spam. If a SPAM service recognizes that a unidentified server, a server not in your domain's SPF records, is sending emails on your behalf, it should block emails as spam and from reaching the recipients.

How do I add MarketingPro's IP address to my domain's SPF records:

Contact your email account administrator, email service provider, or company IT personnel whom are responsible for maintaining your email account. They will need to add MarketingPro's as authorized to send on your email account's behalf. They should add the following SPF records:

include:spf1.marketing.pro

include:spf2.marketing.pro

Do I need to update my domain's SPF Records if I'm using my own email server?

No. If you're using your own email server to send emails and not using MarketingPro's server, updating the SPF records is unnecessary.
