Adding SPF and DKIM records to DNS settings | Zoho CRM Help

Adding SPF and DKIM records to DNS settings

Email authentication is a process that enables organizations to maintain the credibility of the email's source when they send emails from Zoho CRM using their own domain. To authenticate the emails, they must verify the following authentication standards:
  1. Domain Verification
  2. DKIM (Domain Keys Identified Mail)
  3. SPF (Sender Policy Framework)
After completing the authentication process in Zoho CRM, the next step is to add the automatically generated SPF and DKIM records to the domain manager. Read more about authenticating emails

DKIM authentication

Domain Keys or DKIM is an email authentication system created by Yahoo! to verify the authenticity of an email sender and protect the message from being altered during transmission. It is based on the DomainKeys specification, which combines elements of Identified Internet Mail to create a more secure protocol known as Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM). This protocol allows the sender to digitally sign each email message with a cryptographic signature, which is then verified by the recipient's email server. This ensures that the message has not been tampered with or altered in any way. DKIM also helps to prevent spam and phishing attempts by verifying the sender's identity and domain.

SPF authentication

SPF, or Sender Policy Framework, is an email authentication protocol that allows domain owners to specify which servers are authorized to send emails on their behalf. It works by verifying the IP address of the sender against a list of authorized IP addresses, known as an SPF record, that is published in the Domain Name System (DNS). If the IP address of the sender is not on the list, then the email is rejected. This helps to protect against email spoofing and phishing attacks, as it ensures that only authorized email servers can send emails from a domain.

  8. Click Add Record.
If you have an existing SPF TXT record:
  1. Locate the record you added and click the Modify Record button.
  2. To the existing record details, add your sender domain after "v=spf1". (Example: include:one.zoho.com)
  3. Click Modify Record.
To add the DKIM record for your domain in HostGator, follow these steps:
  1. Log in to your HostGator account.
  2. From the Navigation toolbar, choose Manage Orders and click List/Search Orders.
  3. Click on your domain from the list displayed.
  4. Under the DNS Management section, click Manage DNS.
  5. First click the TXT Records button to add the DKIM TXT record and then click the Add TXT Record button displayed below it.
  6. Enter the following information:
    1. Host Name: Enter the DKIM hostname displayed in the SPF/DKIM Setup screen. (Example: 2232._domainkey)
    2. Value: Paste the DKIM TXT record displayed on the SPF/DKIM Setup screen of your Zoho CRM account.
    3. TTL: Enter how long the server should take to cache the information. The ideal TTL is 86400 (1 day). It can't be set to less than 14400 (4 hours).
  7. Click Add Record.

Tips:
  1. Having multiple SPF records can interrupt the SPF check which may cause validation failure. As a result, the emails may end up as Spam in the recipient servers. We recommend not to add a new record if you already have one.
  2. Sometimes, DNS providers will automatically add your domain name to the end of your DNS record's attribute name. For instance, if you set up a record with the attribute name _domainkey.yourdomain.com, it might be changed to _domainkey.yourdomain.com.yourdomain.com due to this automatic addition. To prevent this unintended repetition, simply place a dot at the end of the domain name when entering the DNS record. This dot indicates to the DNS provider not to add the domain name again to the record.
    For example, 1522406527143_domainkey.newgensaas.com, it might be changed to 1522406527143_domainkey.newgensaas.com.newgensaas.com
