    Hi all,

    I have been researching this for too long. I would like somebody to walk me through the process of setting up SPF and DomainKeys on my WHM/cPanel server. I have root access. Here is the tricky part, here is how my server is set up, I am using this for my newsletter server. newsletter.realityislove.info is my server's main hostname. All DNS is hosted at godaddy.com. Bartending.com's A and MX records point to register.com Newsletter.bartending.com points to my server at newsletter.realityislove.info . To get newsletter.bartending.com in to my cpanel, I added the domain bartending.com, and then added a subdomain newsletter.bartending.com.

    I ran the
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/domain_keys_installer myusername
    script. But that didn't seem to change anything.

    I would like to know the following:
    How do I enable domainkeys?
    How do I enable SPF?
    What records do I have to add to GoDaddy's DNS for bartending.com and/or realityislove.info?

    Thank you =)

    Light and Love and Healing to you,
    -Patrick Arden McNally

    It should be as easy as going to your cPanel account, Click the Email Authentication icon > Click the 2 buttons there titled Enable. You may want to go over the settings below that for whatever else you find is needed.

    Infopro is correct; I concur and recommend that using the E-mail Authentication feature in cPanel to setup SPF and DomainKeys is the best way forward.

    For additional reference information I suggest reviewing our documentation of the E-mail Authentication feature in cPanel:
    EmailAuthentication < AllDocumentation/CpanelDocs < TWiki

    Hi,

    You can install the SPF & Domain Keys as follows,

    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/domain_keys_installer username

    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/spf_installer username

    Once you execute these scripts, the TXT record will be added to the zone file at /var/named/domainaname.com.db . You will need to add the exact TXT records in your DNS zone files @ your name servers (Godaddy).
