Adding zohomail SPF records

I want to set my zohomail SPF records on Cloudflare but I receive an alarm
“DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004) SPF records are not currently supported. For a list of supported record types, see <Cloudflare API v4 Documentation

The SPF record type is deprecated as of 2014 - RFC 7208 - Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for Authorizing Use of Domains in Email, Version 1

Use a TXT record type instead.


I used that method too but even after 24 hours I checked it on zoho and it still didn’t;t activate and I had this error “SPF record missing”

They most definitely aren’t expecting an SPF record type - since that RFC was published, a ‘SPF record’ is just a TXT record with the correct content.

Your record is but their documentation says

Just add it in with the Type of TXT, Name (required) of @ and Content (required) of v=spf1 ~all then wait for DNS propagation which, as an aside, can take up to 48 hours.
