Help with SPF setting?

Sorry, probably a really obvious question but can someone confirm what I set the "host" as when editing the SPF record in my DNS settings for my domain?

 

I set the value as:

v=spf1 include:email.freshdesk.com~all

 

It wants me to add a subdomain as the host. e.g:
"what do i put here".mydomain.com

 

I presume it's the same subdomain i have set for the portal? (in my case "help")

 

Or should it be the same as the CNAME for email (in my case "mail")?

Hi Tom


You can actually leave the Sub-Domain field as BLANK, but if its a mandatory field, you can just specify the Hostname of your sub-domain. (http://serverfault.com/questions/322949/do-spf-records-for-primary-domain-apply-to-subdomains)
