By default, the sender of emails sent from FULL FABRIC is email@example.com. But did you know that you can change it to an address that you own and manage – more importantly, an address that matches your school's custom domain? 💌 That will ensure that you adhere to email protocols and that messages sent from FULL FABRIC aren't marked as SPAM! 🙏
Using the Sender Policy Framework (SPF)
For security, you must use the SPF protocol for your email domain, which is a simple email authentication method designed to detect email spoofing, i.e., prevent spammers from sending messages on behalf of your domain. It allows mail exchangers to check that incoming mail from a domain comes from a host authorised by that domain's administrators (or simply put, legitimate senders).
Setting up the Sender Policy Framework using IPv4
You can choose to give permission to a specific IP address to send mail for your domain. This is accomplished using the ip4 mechanism. Only mail coming from that particular IP address will be considered a permitted sender for that domain. An example of such an include looks like this:
v=spf1 a mx include:_spf.google.com include:spf.protection.outlook.com ip4:188.8.131.52 ~all
FULL FABRIC's IP address is 184.108.40.206.
Setting up the Sender Policy Framework using hostname lookup
If you have an SPF record set for your root domain (i.e., yourdomain.com), you must add:
before the all mechanism of this record. If you do not have an SPF record for your domain, you must create a TXT record with the value:
v=spf1 include:sendgrid.net ~all
Do not create more than one SPF1 record for a given domain. If you need more than one SPF record, you will want to merge the additional SPF records into a single SPF record.
