Sending from your own domain
Adding a domain name to send e-mails from
If you own a domain name (for example airbnbforcats.com) you can add it to your Magic Login account for sending.
You should use a new subdomain for this purpose, such as ml.airbnbforcats.com or magiclogin.airbnbforcats.com. This keeps your Magic Login usage and sending reputation from other mail sending services you may add in the future (for example a newsletter service, or e-mails you send manually).
Also if you want to one day switch away from Magic Login you will know exactly which DNS entries to remove (but of course we hope you will never want to!).
You may not need to read through guide as the UI also shows instructions. This page just contains more details in case you get stuck.
Next we will need to add some entries to the DNS of our domain. Usually you do this on the website where you registered your domain.
We will add four entries in total:
- Three entries that prevent e-mails from being changed between your sending and arrival, these are called DKIM keys.
- One entry that proves you own the domain name to us, and to link it to this specific Magic Login account.
Optionally (but highly recommended), we will also add a fifth entry:
- One entry that is used for SPF (Sender Policy Framework) that prevents others from spoofing e-mails from this domain name, and helps us link the specific domain to your Magic Login account.
Both DKIM and SPF are important for ensuring your e-mails get delivered reliablity.
