To use your domain for sending, add TXT record to your DNS settings, paying close attention to the specified hostname.

Your TXT records could be stored in two places:

  • either cPanel account;

  • or your domain registrar account.

It depends on the way you propagated your domain name. If you changed DNS – find your TXT records in cPanel, if you changed IP – you need to find them in your domain registrar account.

Find both instructions below, but you need to follow only one option.

Option 1 if your TXT records are stored in cPanel:

Add a new TXT record:

Option 2 if your TXT records are stored in Domain registrar account:

It’s done!
