SPF and DKIM settings in cPanel

Here’s a tutorial on setting up DKIM and SPF in cPanel:

  1. Login to your cPanel account.
  2. Select Zone Editor on the Domains tab.
  3. After enter the Zone Editor, select Manage on your domain. All Zone Record settings for your domain will be displayed.
  4. Now you can start entering the SPF and DKIM configurations. DKIM uses CNAME Record, and SPF uses TXT Record.

For DKIM

Fill in the settings for adding a CNAME Record by clicking the “Add Record” button then select “Add CNAME Record”.

Fill in the settings like this:

Record type: CNAME Record
Name: `mt1._domainkey.(Fill in your domain)`
Record/Value: dkim.mailtarget.co
TTL: Default

For SPF

Fill in the settings for adding a TXT Record by click the “Add Record” button then select “Add CNAME Record”.

Fill in the settings like this:

Record type	: TXT
Name        : (yourdomain.com)
Record/Value: v=spf1 include:spf.mailtarget.co ~all
TTL   		: Default
  1. If you have finished making the settings, you can make sure with check whether your settings are correct.

NOTE, if you have previously enter the SPF settings, then you don’t need to add a new record. Just add include: spf.mailtarget.co to the old Record. For example, you already have an SPF setting v=spf1 include: spf.domain.com ~all, then you just need to change it add it tov=spf1 include: spf.domain.com .co include: spf.mailtarget.co -all without adding a new Record.

Domain status will be updated automatically no later than 2x24 hours, from you adding the settings. If you see a check mark on the list of countries attached, it means your domain status has been updated.
