Before you can start sending emails through the email marketing tool, you must first authenticate your domain, set up an SPF record to enable the best possible delivery performance, and add a user email address to send "From".
To get started, click email marketing and then Domain Sender Setup.
Next, click "Add Domain" and fill out the form (input your domain without the www).
Next, find the domain that you want to start sending from in the list and click the "View TXT Records" button to find the records you will need to enter into your DNS zone.
You'll then need to access your DNS records and add the records that are showing as TXT records into your DNS settings.
Once you have added the necessary information either to your DNS or registrar, come back to the platform and click the "Verify" button.
You should see the status go from "Inactive" to "Active" (NOTE: there can some times be a delay in propagation of your DNS entries you just made. If you get an error when clicking validate, give the system about 30 minutes for your Registrar to propagate, and then refresh the page and try validating again).
Once your domain shows "Active" you are now able to add email addresses that you want to use for your account. Click that "Add a Sender" button next to "Validate":
Add your email handle (everything before the @), select what type of email it will be used for, and if you want to set it as your default, click the "Default" checkbox. Click save. You can add as many addresses that you would like now that your domain is authenticated.
To set your records you will need to go to where you purchase your domain name from (Google domains, GoDaddy, Rackspace, etc.). You will enter these records in your DNS settings for the actual domain you are using for your email address, so if the email you're trying to verify is email@example.com, go to the registrar where you purchase tech-toolbox.net.
For entering your record into your DNS, all you need to do is create a TXT record and use either the domain name itself or the @ symbol in the "Host" field, and then put the record you copied from the platform into he "Value" field. Click save.
