How to Update TXT and SPF Records - DNS Management

Sender Policy Framework and the related TXT files are used to verify domain ownership and implement email security measures to reduce spam and domain spoofing. It is a DNS record that provides text information to sources outside the domain that can be used for several purposes. The record's value can be either human- or machine-readable text. 

Sample SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:_spf.google.com ip4:65.254.224.19 -all
 
v=spf1 mx include ip4:66.96.128.0 -all
Sets the SPF version being used. Allows the domain’s MX details to send an email. Includes Google mail servers as authorized servers. This IP address will pass. Any other IP address will fail.
