In order for Samba to be able to send e-mails on your behalf, you have to set it as your e-mail provider and that includes setting your DNS records correctly.
DNS records are used for validation of your domain. The DNS settings can usually be found in the administration of your domain hosting. These records are inscribed into the header of the e-mail. Thanks to the correct DNS records settings, the e-mail is much less likely to end up in SPAM.
Which DNS records does Samba need
Samba requires DKIM and SPF records as an anti-spam protection. The specific form of these records can be found in Settings – E-mailing integration.
DNS records settings
DNS settings is a part of the administration of your web hosting.
- If your domain doesnt have any SPF record (TXT type, that starts with “v=spf1…”), create a new one with values displayed in the Samba app.
- If you domain has already a SPF record, Samba shows you the final form of the record. For example if your current SPF record looks like this:
v=spf1 a mx include:your.old.record.com ~all
After the edit, it should look like this:
v=spf1 a mx include:your.old.record.com include:mailgun.org~all
- Create a new TXT record with values displayed in the Samba app.
