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"
