DNS configuration description for custom domain owners in HKCCP
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Need to have a more comprehensive about what users need to change in their DNS before they start hosting their own domain. 1011522 OTRS ticket - user suggested the text. Sounds good. We should use at least parts of it to make it more understandable for customers.

I have made the first proposed change, however the explanation about SPF records can not be done easily as proposed, because the values are just read out of the configuration file in a loop without the possibility to inject further text.

This is the proposed explanation text above the DNS entries:

Additionally, to help ensure that your outgoing email is not
mistakenly categorized as spam, add the following TXT record to your
domain's zone file:

@ 3600 IN TXT "v=spf1 mx -all"

If your domain zone file allows for SPF records (a relatively new
type of record), also add the following SPF record:

@ 3600 IN SPF "v=spf1 mx -all"
