email from abuse@godaddy.com

I received an email from abuse@godaddy.com stating one of my domains has been associated with unsolicited emails. Not sure if this is a scam email or legit. I haven't even or don't want to email people about this site as it's just a blog site.

Hey!

This is probably because someone is 'spoofing' your domain to use as an email. What you want to do is prevent anyone not using GoDaddy from sending emails from your domain.

If you go into your domain DNS records,
-Click ADD a record
- Choose TXT
- Host will be @
- Value will depend on what you want to do.

If you have an email using the domain in question... Use this as the value

v=spf1 mx include:secureserver.net -all

That prevents anyone from sending anywhere else.

If you don't want ANY emails sent from that domain... Use this

v=spf1 -all
