Why you should check your SPF record - and how to do it
Checking the status of your SPF (Sender Policy Framework) record is non-negotiable if you want to build and keep the best possible email deliverability. It reduces the chances of your emails being marked as spam and holds off phishing attempts.
The whole idea behind SPF records is to provide an email authentication method that helps to prevent email spoofing, where bad actors forge the sender’s email address to deceive recipients. By running an SPF check, you make sure that only authorized servers can send emails on behalf of your domain.
It’s all about protecting the authenticity of communications sent with your name on them. SPF is part of the mix of industry measures that help you keep control of your own accounts and addresses.
