How to set up SPF

Adding SPF to your domain settings is a great way to ensure that the thank you emails you send your supporters make it to their inboxes.

When we send thank you emails to your supporters on your behalf, they're addresses as coming from your domain but actually come from ours. This makes them more likely to be marked as spam, so you can set up an SPF (Sender Policy Framework) record on your domain's DNS to make it clear to the recipient that these emails are authorized.

If you don't have an SPF record on your domain

Add the line below to your domain's DNS entries:

[domain]   IN  TXT  v=spf1 mx ip4:[orgIP] include:allsend.advocacymailer.com ~all

Make sure to:

  • replace [domain] with your website's main domain (like "newmode.net"), and
  • replace [orgIP] with the IP address of your organization's email server (an IP address looks like "255.255.255.255").

If you already have an SPF record on your domain

Add the text below to incorporate the domain New/Mode uses to send emails:
include:allsend.advocacymailer.com

 

We do not support DKIM at the moment but you can email us at support@newmode.net if you'd like us to let you know if that changes later on.
