We covered generating your Jilt DNS records along with some general guidelines in our article Can I send emails from my own domain? Here we'll take a look at adding the SPF and DKIM records to your 123 Reg domain host.

Now, let's start sending your emails with your own domain.

Access the DNS Manager

1. Log in to your account's control panel at 123 Reg by using this link

2. In the Domain names section, select the relevant name of the domain you are modifying from the dropdown list and click the Manage button.

3. Scroll down to the Advanced Domain Settings section and click the Manage DNS (A, MX CNAME, TXT) link.

4. Select the Advanced DNS tab.

Create a DKIM record

1. Select TXT/SPF from the Type dropdown list in the Add new entry section

2. Enter the Host/Name we previously generated from Jilt (see Can I send emails from my own domain?) into the Hostname field (eg. 20171017171308pm._domainkey ).

3. In the Destination TXT/SPF field, we'll enter the TXT Value we copied from Jilt's Email Domains setup page. Paste the value starting with "k=rsa;" .

4. Click the Add new entry button to save the record.

Great job! We're almost done.

Create a SPF record

1. Select TXT/SPF from the Type dropdown list in the Add new entry section.

2. In the Hostname field, enter @.

3. In the Destination TXT/SPF field, enter the TXT Value generated by Jilt. Paste this value, v=spf1 include:spf.jiltmta.net ~all .

4. Click the Add new entry button to save the record.

If your 123 Reg account already has an SPF record

In some instances, you might already have an SPF record in your Records list. It's not recommended to have multiple records - this can lead to delivery and spam issues. Instead, we can adjust the entry to include a portion of Jilt's TXT Value

Add the following to your existing SPF record and move the ~all to the end: include:spf.jiltmta.net 

Your final SPF record might look something like this:
 v=spf1 a mx include:_spf.google.com include:spf.jiltmta.net ~all 

Next Steps

Once the DNS has had a chance to propagate (sometimes up to 48 hours), return to Jilt's Email Domain page to complete verification.
