  • Posted By: Limo Anywhere

It’s crucial to maintain the security and trust of your online presence, especially when it comes to email communication. To make sure your emails reach your recipients’ inboxes, it’s important to set up email authentication for your custom domain (some of you may need to get a custom email address with your domain, click here to learn more). Using free email services like Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail or others for business emails is not recommended as it can cause delivery issues and lacks professionalism. It’s best to have your own custom email address with your business domain.

Good: YourName@YourDomainName.com

Bad: YourName@Gmail.com

Once you have your custom email address based on your domain name you should follow the instruction below.

  5. Adding CNAME records: Inside your domain registrar account, you’ll find a section related to DNS settings or domain management. Look for options like “DNS Management” or “DNS Configuration.” Once you find it, follow the instructions provided by Limo Anywhere support to add the CNAME records to your DNS settings. Think of these records as special codes that help authenticate your domain.
  6. Verify authentication: After you’ve added the CNAME records, your domain will be authenticated. This means that Limo Anywhere has permission to send emails on your behalf, and your emails will have a better chance of being delivered successfully.
