Wix DNS configuration

If your domain is hosted with Wix, you can follow the below steps to configure SPF, DKIM, and CNAME records for ZeptoMail. It may take 24-48 hours for the records to be published in the DNS. So your domain will not be verified until that time and you will not be able to send any emails using your domain.

  5. If you have an already existing SPF TXT record configured for your domain say "v=spf1 include:zoho.com ~all", then you should not create a new SPF TXT record for ZeptoMail. If the new ZeptoMail SPF TXT value is "v=spf1 include:zeptomail.net ~all", then modify your existing DNS SPF TXT value to "v=spf1 include:zeptomail.net include:zoho.com ~all".
