How to update your SPF Record on Bluehost to allow Infusionsoft to send on your behalf

A good piece of advise if you are thinking of #bluehost. I started hosting with them in may 2013. Just after a couple of months, my websites were down for more than 3 days. The only way to communicate with them was through Facebook. It may happen with any server, but their inability to communicate with the clients but only through Facebook is really sad. I started getting problems with my emails slowly. The emails from different domains/ different email accounts will stay in the outbox for hours before leaving. I sent them emails about it. They will reply back to me but the thread will be missing. They will keep asking silly question in their reply after a day or two. I never had any email problem sorted. I moved 5 domains to new hosting. I just do not want any other to get into this nightmare; hence wasting my time and writing this. WHen you google for #bluehost Bad service, there are many Davids, and Sharma’s talking so nicely about #bluehost in their blogs aor Hosting review sites. Beware!

Wow. That’s a long video title. Anyway, this video is a quick walkthrough for how you can add a SPF record to your domain which will allow Infusionsoft to send emails on your behalf – this can help with getting your emails delivered more consistently.

    Good stuff Greg =) I'm working on this now. I use Bluehost for my host, but my team uses google apps for business for email. So, I'm going to try to copy/paste your technique and find out from google how to do it over there…. wish me luck! =)

    Looks like this link should put me at the startline: https://support.google.com/a/answer/178723?hl=en

    PS: What bumped this up to #1 priority for me was a VIP customer telling me she wasn't getting our emails anymore and did we kick her off the list! AH!
