Introduction

One will navigate to (WHM >> Home >> Email >> Email Deliverability) for acting on this feature. This interface helps in characterizing the issues with one’s server’s mail-related DNS records. These records are employed by the system to verify whether or not the alternative servers will trust it as a sender.

Manage The Domain

It can be done through

  • DKIM
  • SPF

DKIM

This section allows one:

  1. To manage the server’s Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM) record.
  2. It verifies the sender and the integrity of a message.
  3. It allows an email system to prove that spammers have no hand in altering an incoming message while in transit.
  4. It also verifies that the messages received by one’s server comes from the specified domain.

One of the security risk can be the Exposure of one’s private DKIM key. If obtained, others can sign emails and impersonate the actual user as a sender. So one should use caution in providing their non-public DKIM key to solely a trustworthy user.

SPF

This section allows one:

  1. To manage one’s domain’s Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record.
  2. It verifies that the origination of the messages sent from the user’s domain is from an approved sender.
  3. Allows to copy the Name and Value records provided by the system in the Suggested “SPF” (TXT) Record section.
  4. If one does not have the authority to edit one’s own record, the information can be provided to the person responsible for the listed nameservers in order to fix it.
  5. Helps in customizing the suggested SPF record that directs the user to the Customize an SPF Record

Customize An SPF Record

One can customize an SPF record through:

  • Domain Settings
  • IP Address Settings
  • Preview Of The Updated Record

Domain Settings

  1. Additional Settings: allowing the system to send mail from one’s domain.
  2. Additional MX Servers: allowing MX entries to send mail from one’s domain.

IP Address Settings

This section allows one:

  • In computing an additional IP Address that is blocked to the domain’s SPF record.
  • Automatic inclusion of one’s server’s main IPv4 or IPv6 addresses in these lists by the system.

One can use CIDR notation (like, 10.0.0.0/8 for IPv4, or 2001:db8:1a34:56cf::/64 for IPv6).

Additional Settings such as Include or add List (INCLUDE) and Exclude All Other (alternative) Hosts (“-all” Entry) helps in modifying the extra SPF record settings.

Preview Of The Updated Record

This section can show the whole look of the updated SPF which can be established on its current modifications. One can install the new record by clicking on Install a Customized SPF Record.

Reverse DNS (PTR)

This section allows one:

  1. To manage a domain’s current pointer record (PTR), where a PTR record denotes the DNS record resolving an IP address to a domain or hostname.
  2. This record is used by the server to perform a reverse DNS (rDNS) lookup to restore the associated domain or hostname.
  3. A PTR record will require an associated A record for working.

In case an error comes up regarding this record, the interface can offer all data regarding the matter and conjointly offer ways to fix your PTR record.

Conclusion

This interface on Email deliverability has certain functions and ways of managing that are outlined in this article.
