Verifying your SPF and DKIM records is the final step in setting up your Email domain with Jilt.

Complete Domain Verification

After you've entered your SPF and DKIM record information at your domain host, we'll return to Jilt's Email Domain page for your custom domain by clicking Settings -- Email Domains -- Your Domain Name

Click the "Verify DKIM" and "Verify SPF" buttons. 

A success message will appear on the page if everything was set up correctly and the records have had enough time to propagate.

After your TXT record verifications are successful, we recommend sending a test campaign email to yourself to make sure your emails are using the new "from" address.  

Why Aren't My Records Verifying?

There can be a number of reasons why the record may not verify. 

When did you create the record?

It can take up to 48 hours for the records to propagate. Sometimes, it's a matter of waiting a little longer before the record has had time to be cached across the internet.

Do you have more than one SPF record in your DNS settings?

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.mtasv.net 

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

Did you take a look at our SPF and DKIM guide for your domain host?

Due to differences in how domain hosts manage Host/Name values, we may need to adjust these values when creating the records in your DNS settings.

For instance, GoDaddy takes care of adding the domain name to the end of the host value. So instead of entering 20170810233822pm._domainkey.my-domain.com , we'd use the host value 20170810233822pm._domainkey .
