Solved

Hi all, 

Shopify is my domain host and I plan to use Zoho Mail as my email host. 

During set up Zoho asks me to set up SPF and DKIM. 

These seems to be important features and I would like them to be active for my domain fjallbjork.com. 

Should I follow these steps or should I skip them?

Zoho's instructions:

The SPF record to be added for a domain hosted with Zoho is : 

TXT Name: @ 

TXT Value: v=spf1 include:zoho.eu ~all

Considering my situation, is this the right instruction for me? 

How do I set up SPF and DKIM when Shopify host my domain and Zoho host my email? 

Any help highly appreciated! 

 

Best,

Pontus

This is an accepted solution.

Hi @Pontus1 

You definitely want to do this. I can see that you already have the Shopify SPF record in place for your domain (since Shopify is your domain provider, so they do this automatically), so what you want to do is edit this record to also include Zoho. It currently looks like this:

v=spf1 include:shops.shopify.com ~all

You should edit it to be like this:

v=spf1 include:shops.shopify.com include:zoho.eu ~all

A domain can only have one SPF record, which is why you add the various includes etc to one record, rather than creating additional records for each.

Instructions for doing so can be found here:

You should also setup DKIM for Zoho, following their instructions to provide you with the necessary records, and Shopify instructions (as above) to add the records.

Let me know if you need any further help!
