    Step 6: Copy the provided Hostname and Value.

    Step 7: Head to your DNS zone (In our case we use Cloudflare).

    Step 8: Click on “Add a record”.

    Step 9: Select the type as “CNAME”.

    Step 10: Paste the Hostname/Name and the Value/Target, and hit save.

    Note: Turn off the proxy status if you’re using Cloudflare.

    Wait up to 24 hours until Freshmail displays a “Domain Verified” status.

    Setting up SPF

    As per FreshMail’s support channel, in order to authorize FreshMail to send emails on your behalf you will have to whitelist their sending server by adding “” in your SPF record. We, at EasyDMARC, have confirmed that currently, SPF Alignment is not possible with FreshMail, hence you can skip this step to save up SPF Lookup space.

    After everything is set, wait for another day and you should be able to see the reports under the DMARC compliant section with DKIM passing.

    If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to contact EasyDMARC or reach out to the support team at [email protected]
