Check if you have done the DKIM and SPF verification right

Increasing the deliverability of your email marketing campaigns doesn't require that you are a deliverability expert - it is a simple process of making sure that email clients (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo!, Outlook< etc.) know you are sending out legit newsletters.
The most crucial thing to do is to verify both your DKIM and your SPF records. Don't worry, most popular hosting providers make the verification process very easy. 

 

To check if your DKIM and SPF verification was successful just follow the steps below:

A. Checking your DKIM key
