Note: These records only control email, and your website is not at all affected by these dns records.

The SPF record authorises the Mutant Mail server to send email on your behalf. The DMARC record informs cooperating mail servers what they should do with your email message if both SPF and DKIM checks fail.

The CNAME records point to MutantMail DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) keys.

Note: If you are adding a subdomain e.g. please change the host values to the following

For the MX record: from @ to mail

For the TXT SPF record: from @ to mail

For the CNAME record: from default._domainkey to default._domainkey.mail

For the TXT DMARC record: from _dmarc to _dmarc.mail

If you've added the records but it still isn't verifying please wait a little while, it is likely because the changes have not yet propagated.

You can check the records for your domain using

Please leave these records in place for the duration that you use the domain on MutantMail.

A daily check is carried out on the domain's records, if you remove any records then the domain will become unverified for sending. You will receive an email notification to let you know if your domain has become unverified for sending and which record has caused it to happen.
