Synopsis

How to configure a Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record (Exchange 2013).

Prerequisite

You must have a Sherweb 2013 hosted Exchange account

How to

The Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is a technical method to prevent sender address forgery.


Sherweb has server locations for Hosted Exchange in both the US and Canada, which means that it is important to know in which country your server is situated before updating your SPF record.


If you are unsure in which country your Hosted Exchange is located, please refer to the URL you use to log in to your Webmail (OWA).


Canada: Your webmail address starts with webmail05.

US: Your webmail address starts with webmail12.


If you are still unsure, please contact out support team.

 

Note : this configuration has to be done on your PUBLIC DNS server, which might be managed by a hosting provider.


Make sure you transmit the correct information to be added:


- Type of record: TXT

 

- Hostname: your domain suffix (ex: example.com)

 

- Value to add if hosted on Canadian servers:


v=spf1 ip4:199.244.76.0/24 ip4:173.46.152.128/25 -all


- Value to add if hosted on US servers:


v=spf1 ip4:207.126.101.0/24 -all
