Setting up SPF & DMARC Records with CloudFlare

SPF and DMARC records help with getting your emails through to your customers.

Here is how to set this up with CloudFlare.

SPF record example

Type:TXT
Domain: your-domain.com
Value: v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:x.x.x.x -all

DMARC record example

DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance) – prevention of phishing and spoofing.

Type:TXT
Domain: _dmarc.your-domain.com
Value: v=DMARC1; p=reject; sp=none; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400

Should look something like this:

SPF DMARC

If all goes well, you should get something like this in CloudFlare
