How to resolve the error
The exact process to resolve an unknown SPF issue varies by provider. Here are resources for some of the most common providers:
Verify your changes
Once you've made the appropriate changes in your domain provider's DNS settings, you're all set—nothing needs to be done in HoneyBook.
It can take up to 48 hours for DNS changes to take effect. Afterwards, you can always run the deliverability test again to make sure any errors are fixed.
If you send more than 5,000 emails per day
If you send more than 5,000 emails per day, Google and Yahoo's email spam filter updates (taking effect February 2024) impact you directly. Once you've verified your DKIM and SPF configuration, you will also need to define DMARC.
