If your aim is to have professional results from your email marketing efforts, then it's almost mandatory to look into what is a fairly simple procedure, which will greatly impact the success of your campaigns and allow you to hit inboxes every time!

First, you need to make sure you know where to find the required SPF & DKIM information inside your Moosend account. Then all you have to do is follow the steps described below:

3. Click on the domain name you wish to create an SPF record for.

4. Click Manage DNS Records, in the DNS column.

    Select the TXT type.
