The emails that you send to your prospects might run the risk of being marked as spam. To prevent this from happening, all you need to do is create a Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record by modifying your Domain Name System. 


Here's how you do it:

  1. Go to your domain registrar's website.
  2. Login to the domain control panel.
  3. Open your DNS configuration settings. 
  4. Edit your ZONE File and look for TXT or SPF record.
  5. Specify the following value: v=spf1 include:_spf.freshsales.io ~all .
  6. Save your changes.


If you have an existing SPF record, simply include the SPF in the same line as your existing record as shown below, 

v=spf1 include:spf1.domain.com include:spf2.domain2.com include:_spf.freshsales.io ~all


If you still have trouble sending and receiving emails, you can find instructions more specific to your domain from the domain websites below,
