Using email service

Drupal applications need to send emails for several purposes such as password resets, user registrations, or other notifications. To meet these purposes, Acquia China Managed Service provides a primitive SMTP service.

Note

Acquia recommends you to use a third-party email service for advanced email service, such as email marketing or bulk user notifications.

Procedure

To enable the email service on Acquia China Managed Service, complete the following steps:

  1. Submit a support ticket and mention the support team domain that you want to use for the email service.
  2. After receiving a DNS SPF record from the Support team, update these config for your domain.

Examples of the SPF record settings

  1. Create the following subdomain based on the SPF domain:

    _spf.example.com
    
  2. Add the following SPF entry to your original domain TXT record:

    v=spf1 include:_spf.example.com -all
    
  3. Add the following SPF entry to your new created SPF domain:

    v=spf1 ip4:10.0.0.1 ip4:10.0.0.2 -all
