8. Finalize the setup

  • Click “OK” to continue creating your first campaign.
  • Go to “deliverability report” to check information about the correctness of SPF and DKIM when connecting the mailbox.


Deliverability is the number of emails that have reached the recipients’ inboxes compared to the number of sent messages overall. The goal is to have as many of your emails land in your prospects’ inboxes rather than going to spam folders. To ensure high deliverability rates, make sure you set up SPF and DKIM correctly.

Also, don’t forget about the domain and email address warm-up.

9. Configure SPF records

Please add SPF records to your DNS if you use a custom domain ([email protected]) to send your emails.

To do so, follow the steps described in this Zoho help article. Below you will find the record which you need to add to your domain:
