Outgoing Email Configuration

Your site sends out emails like password resets and user account creation, for instance. These emails are called transactional emails. For normal application emails you can make use of the local Servebolt server’s email service. You should set up your DNS to allow our servers to send email from your domain by adding our SPF record.

SPF record in DNS

Your SPF DNS-records should include a reference to our SPF record. This will allow receiving email servers to allow emails from our network. An SPF record is a TXT type record, and its contents should look something like this:

v=spf1 include:_spf.raskesider.no include:_spf.google.com ~all

It is important that include:_spf.raskesider.no is added after v=spf1 with a space, and before ~all (or -all depending on your configuration). Do not remove or change other entries unless you know what you are doing.

If there’s not SPF record present, then the contents would look like this:

v=spf1 include:_spf.raskesider.no ~all

If you do not know how to, you can show this page to your DNS service provider.

External Transactional Email Services

If you’re sending out a lot of more than just a few emails, for instance as a newsletter or form submissions, you should set up a transactional email service to guarantee delivery.

We recommend using a dedicated service for that. Specifically, we recommend the following services:
