Dominic -


I need to add SPF/ DKIM records for my domain on the atmail cloud.


  • atmail cloud


Requirement for SPF/ DKIM implementation.


SPF records are used to denote IP addresses or Hosts that a domain should/can be sent from.

The syntax for adding atmailcloud to your Domains DNS as a TXT record is as follows:

v=spf1 -all

The above SPF query will include the contents of the SPF as found in which atmail control and can update when server IPs change.

Please note that you have to option of defining a soft or hardfail:

~ = softfail: Mail shouldn't be sent from here, but still accept it
- = hardfail: Mail shouldn't be sent from here, drop it

In regards to the example SPF record advised, a hardfail is used which will tell receiving MTA's to drop the mail unless it is sent from the atmailcloud.

DKIM records and instructions for implementation can be attained by submitting a ticket or contacting us on
