We're having some email deliverability problems and I've tracked it down to a couple of issues:

  1. SPF/DKIM records are mismatched
  2. Our app is sending mail from one domain on behalf of another without permission

Our app is set up to send mail through a mail server at companymailserver.com, but we're changing the FROM address to come from support@companyname.com.

I can't quite figure out what needs to be done to authorize companymailserver.com to send mail on behalf of support@companyname.com

I know I need to handle this with Domain Delegation, but I'm at a loss on how to actually set that up.

If someone can point me in the right direction I'd be very grateful!

To authorize companymailserver.com to send mail for companyname.com you would need to add an SPF record to the companyname.com public DNS to specify that it is allowed.

companyname.com IN TXT v=spf1 ip4: ip4: -all
