How to Verify the From Email in GoDaddy


With OfficeRnD, you can make notification emails (like ones confirming member operations on the mobile and web portals) to be sent from a custom address. For that to happen, we need to authorize the domain to submit emails on your behalf. We require SPF, DKIM and CNAME records to be added in your domain DNS (Domain Name Service).

2. Select Type TXT.

3. Set Host to rndemail._domainkey.
