To authenticate a GoDaddy email, you need to set up the appropriate DNS records in your GoDaddy account. Here are the steps to authenticate your GoDaddy email:
1. Log in to your GoDaddy account and navigate to the “My Products” section.
2. Find the email service you want to authenticate and click on the “Manage” button next to it.
3. In the email management dashboard, look for the option to set up DNS records or authenticate your domain.
4. Depending on the email service you are using, you may need to add different types of DNS records. The most common ones are SPF (Sender Policy Framework) and DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) records.
– SPF record: This record specifies which servers are authorized to send emails on behalf of your domain. It helps prevent email spoofing and improves email deliverability. Follow the instructions provided by GoDaddy to add the SPF record to your DNS settings.
– DKIM record: This record adds a digital signature to your outgoing emails, allowing the recipient’s email server to verify the authenticity of the message. GoDaddy will provide you with the necessary DKIM information, including the public key, which you need to add as a DNS record.
5. Once you have added the required DNS records, save the changes and wait for the changes to propagate. This process may take some time, usually a few hours to a day.
6. After the DNS records have propagated, you can use various email authentication tools to verify if your GoDaddy email is properly authenticated. Some popular tools include SPF checkers, DKIM validators, and DMARC analyzers.
By following these steps, you can authenticate your GoDaddy email and improve the deliverability and security of your outgoing messages.
