Verifying email domain with DNS records

If your email is hosted with email services like Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Shopify etc and you have completed the email forwarding then you don’t have to worry about this step.

However, if your email is self-hosted you will need to verify the domain ownership by updating the DNS records (CNAME & TXT) in the DNS settings of your email provider 

Click on the Show DNS records button to view the CNAME & TXT records.


Copy these DNS records to update the DNS in your domain provider. This process of DNS updating varies depending on your host’s platform, so we’ve collected links below to the setup instructions for some of the major ones. If your domain provider is not listed here, please search for “DNS records’ in the knowledge base of your provider or get in touch with their support.

Test your email connection: Once you have completed the DNS setup, send a test email to your connected email id and vice versa to confirm that the email is successfully connected with your Richpanel inbox.
