    Hello,

    i see there is DKIM and SPF option in "cPanel/ Email Authentication". These are disabled for my account.
    I want to ask what are reasons these options are disabled by default. And if i can globally enable them in WHM for all existing cpanel accounts and all newly created ones / if its wise?

    Thank you

    Yes it's a good idea. It should be enabled by Default, just as it shows there in tweak Settings.

    Sorry to bump this thread but can you let me know why the default for SPF records is off whereas DKIM is on? I have enabled both but just wondered if there is a down side to doing that (hence the off by default)

    I can't think of any downsides to enabling SPF records for all accounts unless some accounts prefer to use custom records. Feel free to open a feature request for a change in the default value of this setting:

    Thank you.
