CloudPanel includes the capability of checking the SPF records for all of your domains that are enabled for email in order for you to maintain SPF records easier.
CloudPanel will do one of two things:
- Check if a SPF record exists or not and the domain is enabled for email in CloudPanel. You will be alerted if the domain is enabled for email but contains no SPF record. You should correct this right away.
- Check if the SPF record is missing certain values that you provide in the CloudPanel setup page.
Configure the SPF Values
To have CloudPanel check if the domain contains certain records in the SPF record, please enter a comma separated list of the values you want in the SPF Record Check field under Microsoft Exchange on the CloudPanel Settings.
This is a “OR” check and will only check if one of the values exist or not.
CloudPanel does not check that the SPF passes validation and is in the proper format. It also does not check recursively. The check performed is only checking that any of the values listed above actually exist in the record.
