How to Add SPF, DKIM, DMARC Records to HubSpot

To add SPF, DKIM, and DMARC records to HubSpot, follow these steps:

SPF (Sender Policy Framework) Record:

  1. Access DNS Manager: Log in to your domain provider's DNS manager.
  2. Create SPF Record: If you don't have an SPF record, create a TXT record with the value: v=spf1 ~all. If an SPF record exists, add to it without creating a new one.

DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) Record:

  1. Enable DKIM in HubSpot: Go to your HubSpot account settings, navigate to the domain section, and enable DKIM. HubSpot will generate a DKIM key for you.
  2. Add DKIM Record to DNS: Copy the DKIM key provided by HubSpot and create a TXT record in your DNS manager with the name and value specified by HubSpot.

DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance) Record:

  1. Review SPF and DKIM: Ensure that SPF and DKIM are correctly set up and validated.
  2. Create DMARC Record: Add a DMARC TXT record to your DNS. The value should be set according to your policy preference, e.g., v=DMARC1; p=none;, where p=none is the policy (could be quarantine or reject for stricter policies) and rua is the email address for aggregate reports.

Key Points:

  • Verify Records: After adding or updating these records, use online tools to verify SPF, DKIM, and DMARC records.
  • Propagation Time: DNS changes can take up to 48 hours to propagate globally.
  • HubSpot Documentation: Consult HubSpot's official documentation or support for specific instructions or troubleshooting steps.

Note: The exact steps can vary based on your domain registrar or DNS provider, so refer to their specific instructions if needed.
