@gmail.com and SPF records
Why a valid SPF record is important for email domains
Recently, Google has started randomly rejecting emails from domains without a valid SPF record. This means that emails sent from such domains will not be delivered to Google and will be returned to the sender with an error message.
Therefore, in response to numerous customer inquiries, EDIS has decided to configure a neutral standard SPF record for domain legacy without a valid SPF record.
Why a valid SPF record is essential for your email domain
In TXT, the following SPF record is configured by EDIS for domain legacy (domains without an SPF record):
"v=spf1 a:spf.edis.at ~all"
EDIS has configured this SPF record for legacy domains in such a way that there will be no negative impacts, even with divergent technical configurations. Google now requires at least a neutral SPF record (denoted by "~all" at the end of the entry, as opposed to "-all" which describes a strict SPF record). With this step, Google will no longer reject emails addressed to @gmail.com.

It is important to have a valid SPF record for email domains in order to ensure the security and reliability of email delivery overall.
By configuring a neutral standard SPF record for domain legacies that did not have an SPF record, EDIS has helped its customers ensure that their emails can be delivered to @gmail.com addresses by Google.
