Smartech has a standard process to verify that only authorised owners can send emails from your domain using the Smartech panel. This process of verification is important to ensure that domain names are not misused. Hence, before you can use Smartech for campaigning, you need to get your domain added in Smartech.
Adding the domain is a two-step process.
To validate and authorise email exchange domains, you can use the globally accepted system, called the Sender Policy Framework (SPF), or DKIM, or both.
Email Service Providers (ESPs) like gmail.com, hotmail.com, etc. validate if the IP address from which email is sent and the sender’s domain belong to the same administrator. If the IP does not exist in the TXT record of sender’s domain (DNS) setting, then the incoming mails from the domain may be treated as SPAM.
As per the SPF system, you are required to add “include: netcore.co.in” in the TXT records of the DNS records of your website.
Example: An ecommerce company, ShopCore, wants to send emails with sender domain as shopcore.com using the SMARTECH platform. To be able to do so, ShopCore must first add netcore.co.in the TXT record of its website shopcore.com
Sample TXT record:
shopcore.com. 500 IN TXT “v=spf1 ip4:10.19.246.10 include:netcore.co.in ~all”
Depending on the internet domain registrar of your website, the authentication process may vary. To learn about how to do this, you may refer to these links:
