How to Add DKIM and SPF Records

This article contains detailed instructions on how to add DKIM and SPF records in GoDaddy a step that is required for white labeling your school's email notifications (available in the Learning center plans or higher). 

Below are the detailed steps. The process is quite similar to other domain hosting providers as well:

1. Go to and log into your account:

2. Locate your domain that is to be set up with the LearnWorlds platform.

3. Click on DNS.

4. Once the menu with the Records appears, click on Add to add a new record:

The type of record you will be adding is a TXT (Text) type. This will create the SPF Record you need for email. The "Host" Field should contain @ and the "TXT value" should be: v=spf1 ?all

Note: If you already have an SPF record (besides the one you need to add for your LearnWorlds school) you need to merge them into one. More specifically, you need to edit the existing record and if it ends with ?all change it to ~all . Then add before the ~all part in your existing SPF record, instead of creating a new TXT record. It's really important to add space before the ~all part, otherwise, the system will produce an error.

Once you are done, click on Save.

5. Click on Add again, in order to add a second record. The type of record you will be adding is also a TXT (Text) type. 

This will create the DKIM Record you need for email. The Host Field should contain mandrill._domainkey and the text value should be: 

v=DKIM1;k =rsa;p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQCrLHiExVd55zd/IQ/J/mRwSRMAocV/hMB3jXwaHH36d9NaVynQFYV8NaWi69c1veUtRzGt7yAioXqLj7Z4TeEUoOLgrKsn8YnckGs9i3B3tVFB+Ch/4mPhXWiNfNdynHWBcPcbJ8kjEQ2U8y78dHZj1YeRXXVvWob2OaKynO8/lQIDAQAB;

Once you are done, click on Save.

Note: Don't forget to check if you have added successfully your SPF and DKIM records here by inserting your Domain name, and as DKIM Selector, you need to type mandrill.

6. When these 2 records have been successfully added, please send us a message at informing us about the new email address you have chosen as your school's notification sender so that we can finalize the process.
