If you are using our outbound smarthost and have a need for an SPF record on your domain, please use the record below as a starting point.


While all environments are different and you may require additional tokens, this record will authorise mymailsecurity to send on behalf of your domain.

v=spf1 mx include:spf.mymailsecurity.co.nz -all

This will be placed in a TXT record on your DNS zone.


The example above will include all of mymailsecurity IP addresses as they exist or may change in the future.


The ~all token indicates that any message not matching this SPF record should be “soft-failed” meaning that the recipient should record the error but not reject the incoming message. The tilde (~) can be changed to a dash (-) if you wish to inform recipients that invalid senders should be blocked.


If you already have an SPF record set up for your domain, you can simply add the statement “include:spf.mymailsecurity.co.nz” to the end of the SPF record, before the “all” token.


For example; if your current SPF record is this: v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all


You would update it so that it reads as follows: v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:spf.mymailsecurity.co.nz -all

Any questions regarding implementation of the record should be directed to our helpdesk.
