In this lecture, we will discuss how to set up customer emails with Shopify domain and SPF records. It is essential to have your own domain name for your Shopify store, and you don't want your customers to receive emails from a generic email address. Therefore, we will explore the steps involved in getting the customer emails working correctly.
Setting up customer emails:
1. Go to your store settings and enter the channel settings.
2. Under the store details, you will find the store name and the account email.
3. Use your generic email address for the account email.
4. Shopify will use this email address to send information directly to you.
5. The customer email address is the email address that Shopify will put inside if they send emails to your customers.
6. It is essential to ensure that the customer sees emails from a professional email address.
1. SPF stands for sender policy framework.
2. It is a security mechanism in place to prevent spam.
3. If Shopify is sending out an email with an address on your behalf, the receiving party has no idea if you actually want to do this.
4. Therefore, we have to add an SPF record to our domain.
5. To do this, go to the advanced DNS zone editor in your cPanel.
6. Add a text record using the record type text.
7. Copy the exact record from the Shopify website and paste it in your cPanel.
Checking SPF records:
1. You can check if the SPF records are set up correctly using a tool like MX Toolbox.
2. Enter your domain name and click on SPF record lookup.
Email template modifications:
1. You can change all of the email templates from your store under the channel settings and notifications.
2. You can modify the order confirmation, shipping confirmation, shipping updates, customer account information, etc.
Setting up customer emails with Shopify domain and SPF records is crucial to ensure that your customers receive emails from a professional email address. Adding an SPF record to your domain is essential to prevent emails from landing in the spam folder. You can check if the SPF records are set up correctly using a tool like MX Toolbox. Finally, you can modify the email templates from your store if needed.
How To Setup SPF and DKIM Records For G Suite - G Suite Email Security Guide - G Suite
In this video, Scott from Sert MediaCom explains how to set up a DKIM record and an SPF record for GSuite. These records help authenticate emails and prevent them from being marked as spam. Here are the steps he follows:
1. Delete old records: Scott starts by deleting all his old records to have a clean start.
2. Set up MX records: Ensure that you have set up the MX records required for GSuite.
3. Create SPF record: To create an SPF record, you need to create a TXT record with the symbol as the name and the record provided by GSuite as the value. This helps prevent spoofing and protect your domain from being blacklisted.
4. Authenticate email: To authenticate your email, go to your GSuite account, select the domain you want to add a DKIM record for, and generate a new record. Copy the TXT record name and value and paste it into your DNS host.
5. Start authentication: Once you have added the DKIM record, start authentication, and wait for up to 48 hours for GSuite to recognize the record.

Intro to SPF, DKIM, and DMARC
Hey guys, it's Nick and in this episode of Humongous 365, we're going to be talking about SPF, DKIM, and DMARC records within Office 365. These three tools help to authenticate mail senders and ensure the destination email system trusts messages sent from your domain.
Let's dive in with some bullet points:
- SPF (Sender Policy Framework) validates outbound emails sent from your custom domain. It helps ensure that your mail is coming from authorized servers.
- DKIM (Domain Keys Identified Mail) adds a digital signature to email messages in the message header. Email systems can use this signature to verify whether incoming email is legitimate.
- DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance) helps detect legitimate senders and avoid spoofing events. It performs a check against the from address.
Now, let's take a look at an example. Luke's Lightsabers recently set up a text record in the DNS settings for their primary domain. The record is publicly available and shows that all of Luke's mail should be coming from Microsoft's email servers. If a sender within Luke's organization sends an email to someone outside the organization, the recipient's email server performs a DNS lookup to see where the public records are for Luke's domain. If the records match the sender's IP, the message is approved and sent to the recipient. If the SPF lookup fails, the message is likely marked as spam.
While SPF is a great first layer of protection, it has its limitations. For example, when an email is forwarded, the SPF may fail and create false positives. This is where DKIM comes in. It adds a digital signature to email messages, ensuring they haven't been tampered with.
Finally, DMARC helps detect legitimate senders and avoid spoofing events. It performs a check against the from address, working together with SPF and DKIM.
To set up these records, you'll need to log into your primary DNS registrar and update the records. Microsoft has plenty of documentation on what these records should look like. Note that there is one setting you'll need to configure within the Defender Admin Center for DKIM records.
That's everything for this episode on configuring SPF, DKIM, and DMARC records. Stay tuned for my next episode, where we'll be talking about the attack simulation training functionality within Microsoft's Defender for Office 365. Thanks for watching!
How To Setup DKIM in 3 Steps - Set Up DNS & EMail
DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) is a method of email authentication that helps protect against email spoofing and phishing attacks. In this article, we will go through the three basic steps of setting up DKIM for your email services.
Step 1: Generating Keys
- Go to Google and search for a DKIM generator
- Use a generator with a user-friendly interface and the option to specify your own selector key
- Enter your domain name and selector key, then select your bit rate
- Your public and private keys will be generated
Step 2: Entering Public Key into DNS Servers
- Build a DNS text record entry in Notepad with your selector key and domain name
- Add your public key preceded by V=DKIM;P= into the value field
- Remember to include a trailing dot at the end of the name field
- Add the text record entry to your DNS server using the text record entry option
Step 3: Entering Private Key into Email Server
- Copy your private key with begin and end RSA private key strings
- Paste it into a new text record and save it on your email server
- Enable DKIM signing on your email server and enter your private key and selector key
- Test your DKIM setup with a real-world email
Setting up DKIM for your email services is a simple process that can significantly increase the security of your email communications. Remember to pay attention to your selector key and include a trailing dot in your DNS text record entry to ensure a successful setup.
