Create Sender Policy Framework Record

<h4>Create Sender Policy Framework Record</h4>

(Source Microsoft Technet)

Applies to: Office 365 Deployment Guide for Enterprises

This procedure modifies records at your domain registrar to include a sender policy framework (SPF) record to allow Exchange Online and your on-premises email system to successfully send email from your domain. This procedure is highly recommended, and it is required if your ISP has implemented SPF.
To create an SPF record
Log on to your domain registrar. The interface for the registrar Go Daddy (Figure 12) is referenced in the remaining steps.
Click to access your account information (for example, My Account).
Click the domain that you want to register with Office 365.
Click to access details for the domain (for example, Advanced Details).
Open the DNS management console (for example, Launch DNS Manager).
In TXT or Text section, click Add (for example, Quick Add).
Under Host, type @.
For the TXT value, type v=spf1 include: ~all. If there is an existing SPF record, you must update it to include the “ include:” statements in addition to your already declared legitimate hosts. Note that include: is only required for existing FOPE customers.
For TTL/time to live, type 1 Hour.


SPF is a relatively new feature and may not be implemented by your ISP. Even if your ISP has not implemented SPF, we recommend that you create an SPF record to make sure your domain is compatible with future enhancements at your ISP.
