What should I use for my SPF record?

If you are hosting your email on Brownrice servers and are having email deliverability problems, go to our Dashboard and enter this TXT record (the quotes are important) under the DNS Tab:

"v=spf1 a include:spf.brownrice.com ~all"

A SPF record (Sender Policy Framework) works to reduce spam and email spoofing by specifying which mailservers are allowed to send mail from your domain. 

On the receiving side of things, SPF works by verifying emails against the SPF record to ensure that emails came from your domain.

In addition to SPF, Brownrice recommends you use DKIM and DMARC, especially if you are having problems with message delivery and incorrect spam flagging.
