What is a "Verified Sender Domain"?

A verified sender domain is a domain that has given EmailPush permission to send email from your domain. This means that the emails are being sent by EmailPush servers, but the emails are using your domain as the "From" address.

Why is it a good idea to verify your sending domain?

Recipient ISPs need to verify that the domain has given permission for EmailPush servers to use it. They can verify this by looking up certain records in your domain's DNS.

Where do I start, where do I go to fill in the correct form for this? What will I see?

First, you will go to where your domain is hosted (ie. GoDaddy, Dreamhost, Hostgator etc), there will be an option there to adjust your DNS settings. You will see several fields of information to fill. The most common are SPF, DKIM.

Once I've entered those records (SPF, DKIM & Tracking Records) in my DNS settings, what do I do next?

Once those records have been added to your domain's DNS settings, visit your EmailPush account's.

Go to your EmailPush account >> Start >> Click on Verify domain
Click on Add Domain >> Put your sending domain >> Click on Add Button >> Click on "Verify".

Your sending domain will show up below our default domain. Now, Click on "Verify" to check all records verified successfully or not. Green check marks mean that the record has been added correctly.

Once all record (SPF, DKIM & Tracking Record) has been added correctly then click on Set As Default button and then put any email id of that domain as your default.

Refresh your browser page. Now you can send email from your email id ("anything@yourdomain.com").
