SPF Record

What is the SPF record?

The SPF record is a record added to the domain's DNS so that the receiving email servers can verify that the server's IP address is authorized to send emails on behalf of the domain. This prevents spammers from using the domain to spoof emails.

This record also helps maintain a good domain reputation, because authenticated emails are more likely to be delivered to the recipient's inbox rather than being marked as spam.

How to configure the SPF Record

When you want to send emails using an email like name@yourdomain.com, the recipient servers look at the SPF records to validate that the email sent by Airdesk is genuine. Some servers may reject sending emails if domains do not have a valid SPF record.

To validate this record, you will have to add the SPF data in the DNS configuration area of your domain, using a TXT type record, and adding the following value:

v=spf1 a mx include:spf.eu01.email.airdesk.ai ~all

If you use more e-mail services, you should add the value include:spf.eu01.email.airdesk.ai to the current record, in order to avoid errors in SPF searches.

Example of an SPF record with more than one email service:

v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:spf.eu01.email.airdesk.ai  -all

Example of an SFP record:

Name / HostType of RecordValueTTL

@ = (yourdomain.com)


subdomain =



v=spf1 a mx include:spf.eu01.email.airdesk.ai ~all


SPF Record configuration steps

  1. Access your domain manager

  2. Go to DNS management for the domain you want to configure

  3. Add a TXT record

  4. In Name/Host, use @ (if you want to configure the registration in the main domain)

  5. Add the value: v=spf1 a mx include:spf.eu01.email.airdesk.ai ~all

  6. Save the record

How to validate the SPF Record

After adding the data to your domain, you can validate the registration using the “Validate Records” button in the domain configuration area on Airdesk.
