Advanced options for successful email delivery
For increasing the chance of email delivery, the extension allows you to apply even more enhanced technologies, and SPF Record is one of them. SPF (or Sender Policy Framework) is a special email data validation framework that detects the emails with the fake sender addresses and identifies them as spam. The challenge is to avoid these rejections, and the Magento 2 SMTP module setup can help.
Even though SPF configuration is optional, keep in mind that if you replace an email sender and do not properly configure the SPF record, your emails are likely to end up in a spam folder. To reduce the possibility for your emails of being marked as “suspicious”, you may do the following (based on what you prefer to use for email sending):
1. Configure SPF record for your own SMTP server
You may set the configuration for your own email server using your domain. The extension supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. All you need to do is to specify the necessary domain and addresses in the SPF record. Moreover, you can forbid the receiving of emails that are not specified in your record. Check the details of the configuration here.
2. Adjust SPF record for Google Apps
It is also possible to set the same record for Google Apps services, but it will have particular differences. In case you use this service to send emails, you’ll need to activate the specific SPF configuration for Google Apps. If you use the service only to receive emails while sending is processed by your own server, the settings will have some peculiar properties as well. And, of course, you can configure the record even though you use Google Apps for both receiving and sending your emails.
