Hi.

I successfully connected my website, barbaragiles.com, to squarespace. It is working fine.

I successfully sent an email from me and to me from squarespace. But, to not have my emails go to spam, I need to verify my email that is hosted by sonic.

My first question/concern is: will my current email service between sonic and me be affected?

This is the link to what squarespace needs to have done at sonic with step by step instructions: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-u ... -Campaigns

This is the code that needs to be at sonic:

Because this is email and is CRITICAL, I would like to work with a tech support person at sonic who has done this before. Is it possible to arrange a meeting to do this?

Many thanks,
Barbara Giles

Hi Barbara,

I've gone ahead and added the DNS records to barbaragiles.com per your description and the Squarespage Support guide. This verification page you provided a screenshot of should now pass.

For future reference, I added the following records via Member Tools (Web Sites / Domain Names -> Edit DNS -> Modify Host Records):

Name: _dmarc
TTL: 7200
Type: TXT
Record: "v=DMARC1; p=none"

Name: squarespace._domainkey
TTL: 7200
Type: CNAME
Record: squarespace-domainkey.squarespace-mail.com

Name: (Leave this blank)
TTL: 7200
Type: TXT
Record: "v=spf1 include:mail.sonic.net
include:squarespace-mail.com ~all"

Those should hopefully take care of the requirements for Squarespace's Email Campaigns product.
