Sender Email Domain Authentication Settings

There are several steps you must take to set up email sender domain authentication. For example, we use cPanel to manage DKIM and SPF. You can also set DKIM and SPF at the website where you buying a domain, such as: godaddy, name.com, domain.com and so on.

Here is a tutorial on managing DKIM and SPF in cPanel:

  1. Log in to the cPanel account.

  2. Select Zone Editor on the Domains tab

  3. After entering the Zone Editor, select Manage on your domain. All Zone Record settings on your domain will be displayed.

  4. CNAME settings Fill in the settings to add a CNAME Record.
    In the form name, please enter: mt1._domainkey.domain.com
    In the Record form, please fill in: dkim.mailtarget.co
    After that, please click the Add Record button

  5. SPF settings Fill in the settings to add the TXT Record.
    In the form name please fill in your domain name
    In the Record form, please fill in: v = spf1 include: spf.mailtarget.co? all
    Then click the Add Record button.

Note: if you have previously made SPF settings, then you do not need to add a new Record. Just add include:spf.mailtarget.co on the old Record. For example, you already have SPF settings v=spf1 include:spf.example.co ?all, then you just need to change it to add it to v=spf1 include:spf.example.co include:spf.mailtarget.co ?all.

  1. Open whatsmydns.net to check whether the settings are active.
    On the form example, type your domain name.
    On the dropdown menu next to it, select CNAME to see CNAME or TXT status to see TXT status.
    Then click the Search button.

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 that your domain status has been updated.

Setting SPF and DKIM on another dashboard

If you does not use cPanel, then you can follow these steps (Example: rumahweb.com, qwords.com, domainesia.com, cloudflare.com).

  1. Log in to the Dashboard where you purchased the domain

  2. Enter your domain list, and select the domain you want to set for SPF and DKIM.

  3. Look for Zone Editor / DNS Management settings. At each domain provider, these settings have different names. For example:
    • rumahweb.com You can find this setting in Manage Domain, then select DNS Management.
    • qwords.com, choose Domain DNS Manager.
    • domainesia.com, after selecting the domain, click Addons. Then click Manage in the DNS Zone Manager.
    • cloudflare.com, Enter the DNS menu after you select the domain.
  4. CNAME settings Fill in the settings to add a CNAME Record.
    In the form name, please enter: mt1._domainkey.domain.com
    In the Record form, please fill in: dkim.mailtarget.co
    After that, please click the Add Record button

  5. SPF settings Fill in the settings to add the TXT Record.
    In the form name please fill in your domain name
    In the Record form, please fill in: v = spf1 include: spf.mailtarget.co ?all
    Then click the Add Record button.

Note: if you have previously made SPF settings, then you do not need to add a new Record. Just add include:spf.mailtarget.co on the old Record. For example, you already have SPF settings v=spf1 include:spf.example.co ?all, then you just need to change it to add it to v=spf1 include:spf.example.co include:spf.mailtarget.co ?all.

  1. Open whatsmydns.net to check whether the settings are active.
    On the form example, type your domain name.
    On the dropdown menu next to it, select CNAME to see CNAME or TXT status to see TXT status.
    Then click the Search button.
