Issues Verifying SPF Record For Campaigns (GoDaddy)

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.cedarboatclub.org

Hi there,

I host my domain through GoDaddy, and I thought I took all the necessary steps to verify the email campaign address. However, even after merging all of my SPF records and setting the TTL to 600 seconds, I still cannot get the domain to verify it. Here's what I have:

TXT       @          v=spf1 include:secureserver.net include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:squarespace-mail.com -all           TTL: 600 seconds

It has been over 36 hours since I originally tried punching in the SPF record. Any ideas? I'll also let you know if it just fixes itself, since I thought setting the TTL to be low would be enough.

 

Thanks.

The issue is not propagation. You have two SPF records so you'll need to check them and delete the old one 🙂

I got rid of the old ones, the only one with SPF in it that I still have is an MX one:

v=spf1 mx include:secureserver.net -all

I think I'm good though, right? The only other SPF I have now is the one previously stated. I'm not that experienced with DNS yet.

There are still 2 SPF records on the cedarboatclub.org domain – you can use this tool to check your SPF records configuration: https://www.dmarcanalyzer.com/spf/checker/

You can only have one SPF record on each domain, so you'll need to rewrite your SPF record so that it covers all the services/IPs you are using to send email from your domain in one expression. Here's another resource that might help there: https://www.dmarcanalyzer.com/spf/how-to-create-an-spf-txt-record/

Hope that helps!
