When we launched our new email authentication system last week, we had no idea how well it would be received. To be honest, authentication can be a tricky concept to get your head around and I was a little nervous about how popular it would be.

Sometimes I love being wrong. In less than a week hundreds of authenticated domains have been set up, many with an authenticated domain for each and every client. It’s been fantastic to see and a great result for everybody. Your emails have a better chance of being delivered, ISP’s know who you are and your domain is being protected from abuse.

A number of customers have also been kind enough to send in instructions and screenshots walking through how they added the records with their own hosts. This is hugely appreciated. If you’ve set things up and don’t see your host listed, we’d LOVE for you to send through the steps and screens so it will be that much easier for your fellow Campaign Monitor designers using the same host.

Of course, it hasn’t been smooth sailing for all. Almost every host out there has a different front end for managing your DNS. Some make it a breeze, others like to see you sweat. We’ve even discovered a few hosts that don’t support TXT records (and therefore authentication) at all. Sigh. We’ve put together a quick authentication FAQ for those of you that are having trouble getting your records added. We’ve found that with a little persistence even those claiming not to support it can bend their rules if you ask nicely.
