Enhanced spam protection - Proactive implementation of the Sender Policy Framework (02.11.2018)

In recent weeks there has again been a massive increase in spam emails.

In many cases, these e-mails are sent with fake sender addresses (From: Address).
No e-mail accounts or mail servers are hacked, only a "From" address is faked (often your own address).

We have now proactively made a Webland specific SPF entry in the zone file (DNS) for all domains* hosted at Webland to block such e-mails.
If, in addition to the Webland mail servers, you want to authenticate other mail servers for sending mail with your domain as the sender, you must necessarily complete the SPF entry (e.g. sending newsletters via third-party providers such as Mailchimp etc.).

*No changes have been made for domains that already have SPF entries or external MX entries in the DNS zone file.
