I just went online with my website (www.coverup.nu) and made an order to test it out, and everything worked fine but the order confirmation mail bounced. This is the message I got:

I'm not exactly sure but there's an html there for the template which you can edit. I can't say I'm certain you can solve it there, but still worth a try.

Also, you're website is really attractive, may I ask what theme was used to build it?

This is an accepted solution.



Have you recently changed the email address that is set as the customer email in ‘Settings > General’?


This email address needs to be a valid email address with hosting that supports sending out emails. Additionally, email addresses from hosts such as Yahoo or AOL use the DKIM specification which is not supported by Shopify. Addresses with Gmail or Hotmail are supported.


It sounds like you need to add Shopify's SPF Record to your domain to let your email host know the emails from Shopify are not spam.


To verify your customer email address, you need to add Shopify's SPF record — v=spf1 include:shops.shopify.com ~all — to the TXT record in your custom domain settings.


1. Log in to your domain hosting account.
2. Find your domain's TXT record. This usually appears beside the CNAME record and MX record.
3. Add Shopify's SPF record — v=spf1 include:shops.shopify.com ~all — to your domain's TXT record.
4. Save your changes.


These changes can take 48 hours to take effect, could you try that and let me know how you get on?

Hi @Ava, thank you very much for replying. I already figured it out a couple of days ago, and that was exactly it. I (and someone else, too) do still have another problem with translating my packing slip though, and would be most grateful if you could help me out with that. I started a thread about this last week: https://community.shopify.com/c/Shopify-Discussion/Where-can-I-translate-the-packing-slip/m-p/722188...

Thanks again!

Hey Ava,


Thanks for sharing and your support. Referring to your solution, did you mean like this? I've added an ADDITIONAL TXT line with the Shopify code as suggested. I didn't know what to include for HOST name, so copied the above fields and used '@'. Let me know if this has any effect and your suggestions here also :) See image below...
