Add the below record into the text box of the TXT Record. You can only have 1 spf record at any one time, and only if we host your emails.

You can access your emails via

  1.         Your hosting account
  3.         Third party mail client, such as Outlook, Mac Mail or mobile device.

 What is an IMAP?

By using an IMAP connection, you can have multiple clients simultaneously connected to the same mailbox. For example, you can have email on your phone, your tablet, and your computer, and when you delete a message from your phone, it will also be deleted on your other devices, for this reason we recommend using IMAP over POP3.

How can I deal with spam/junk mail?

Unfortunately spam emails are a fact of life, we all get them.

However, there are some filters within your control panel. These can be found under ‘Junk Mail Filters’ within the Email section of the control panel.

If you are receiving a lot of spam mail from one specific sender, you can block that sender. Simply put in the ‘reject by sender’ section and click ‘update’.

Receiving spam from multiple addresses: under the ‘Junk Mail Filter Levels’ you have the options of Low, Medium, High and Extremely High. You can choose the level you required from the drop-down arrow within this area of the control panel. We would advise only going up by one level at a time and checking that emails are not miss filtered into junk.
