1. Google Workspace SPF Setup

To authorize Google Workspace hosts to send emails on behalf of your domain, you need to:

1. Log in to your domain's DNS dashboard;

2. Go to the page where you can update the DNS settings on that domain;

3. Check if a TXT record starting with v=spf1 already exists; if so, the domain already has an SPF record and you need to update it; otherwise, you need to create an SPF record;
