  • Please look at the LAST 2 lines where mandrill is mentioned and update your domain name with the following. You will be adding these to your Zone file for the domain that is in the From email.
  • To enable DKIM, create a TXT record for (  mandrill._domainkey.yourdomain.com with the following value: 
  • To enable SPF, create a TXT record for YOURDOMAIN.COM with the following value: v=spf1 include:spf.mandrillapp.com ~all
  • If more than one SPF record add this include:spf.mandrillapp.com must end with the ~all 
  • Example of combined SPF record:
