Fastmail & SPF Record

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

I use a third party email called fastmail for my office email and personale email. On the whole its work out cheaper than google an godaddy. When  I was with wix i had no problem with this issue. I would add my SPF records, MX and DKIM record without any problem but with squarespace it seems like there is issues with SPF records. See attachment.  it seems pretty straight forward but fastmail does not seem to see this entry from squarespace.   I bought my domain through squarespace.  I need some help on this matter.

The problem is that you have added two SPF records - one for Zoho Books and one for Fastmail, whereas the Sender Policy Framework (SPF) specification only allows for a single record.

By the way, this isn't a Squarespace specific issue; you'd have exactly the same problem with any domain host.

The solution is to identify all the authorised servers in a single SPF record. It's called merging records. Take a look at the Merge SPF records section of this support guide

Added my spf  records to wix and it worked fine.  The only reason I added  for Zoho Books  is that I send my invoice directly out of zoho books to my clients and soem clients say they never received those emails. I remove teh zoho spf record and see if it works and give you feedback.
