That is a TXT record. Not an MX record.

You probably want to add the following to enable Migadu:

TXT record:

v=spf1 include:spf.migadu.com -all

MX records:

aspmx1.migadu.com. with priority 10
aspmx2.migadu.com. with priority 20


This should be SPF record


hi there.
how do i add a txt record?
i’v all reddy added the cname and spf.

Unfortunately, you cannot add TXT records for free.

If you are talking about this line:

It should be an SPF record, not a TXT one.

Try to enter it removing the -all statement.

Try like this:
v=spf1 include:spf.migadu.com

But you say you are adding it as an MX record. But you need to add it to the SPF Records section.

An SPF record is a type of TXT record.
