|Note: SPF Records should be created as a TXT record, as servers only look at TXT records for SPF instructions. Any changes that you make to your Advanced DNS settings can interrupt your service. If you are not an advanced user, we strongly recommend that you not change these settings without consulting our support department.|
To create SPF records please follow these steps:
Login to your Rebel account, Choose My Account in the top right corner, and select Domain Manager.
Click directly on your domain name to access the domain editing page.
On the domain editing page, select the DNS tab.
Scroll down to Manage Advanced DNS Records and click on Advanced DNS Manager.
|Important: If the Nameserver Information section shows your domain as set to Use Third Party Hosting, the Advanced DNS will only be accessible with your hosting provider. Advanced DNS records live on nameservers. You will only be able to access the Advanced DNS from within your Rebel account if the name server information for your domain is currently set to Park with Rebel, Forward Domain, or Host with Rebel.|
To add an SPF record, click the button to Add New Record.
Set the Record Type as TXT. Fill in the Host and Record fields as instructed by your hosting service provider. You can leave the TTL as it is. Click the green button to Save.
If you are hosted with Rebel's Classic hosting and looking to prevent email spoofing, a TXT record can be applied to your domain so that only Rebel's mail servers are authorized to send mail on behalf of your domain. This is done using the same steps as above, setting the Text Record Type as TXT.
If you have a Plesk hosting package, this option can be enabled by selecting "Use DKIM spam protection system to sign outgoing email messages " in the mail settings.
|Note: This information is only applicable if you are hosted with Rebel's Classic hosting, and do not use any other mail services for sending mail.|
Host : your domain name
Record : "v=spf1 mx a include:relay.mailchannels.net ip4:188.8.131.52 ip4:184.108.40.206 -all"
To edit an existing SPF record, click the Edit button update the Host and/or Points To field, as instructed by your hosting service provider.
You can leave the TTL as it is. Click the green button to Save.
|Note: If your domain was already set to Park with Rebel, Forward Domain, or Host with Rebel, these records should take about 1 hour to propagate. If your domain was previously set to Use Third Party Hosting, updates can take up to 24-48 hours to propagate worldwide, though we find it's typically much closer to 6-12 hours.|
