  2. In the Hostname field, enter your desired host name to be used for Engagement Tracking and Custom Bounce Domain.

CNAME Records For Custom DKIM

Advanced DKIM Signing

It is recommended that you use the DKIM Generation Wizard and use the private and public key pair generated.

  1. Click the Add New button.
  2. In the Host field, enter yourselector._domainkey
  3. Change the Record Type to TXT.
  4. In the Value field, enter k=rsa; p=yourpublickey
  5. Click Save to publish your public DKIM key.

SPF

  1. Click the Add New button.
  2. In the Host field, enter @
  3. Change the Record Type to TXT.
  4. In the Value field enter v=spf1 include:email-od.com ~all
  5. Click Save to publish your SPF record.
 
     

    If Your Domain Already Publishes an SPF Record

    If your domain already publishes an SPF record, you will just need to add the include:email-od.com to it. For example, if your record looks similar to:

    example.com TXT "v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com ~all"

    Then adding include:email-od.com to it will look as such:

    example.com TXT "v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:email-od.com ~all"
