    Hi

    My domain registration company doesn't offer MX records (mail servers) and spf (txt) settings :(

    Any ideas if i can use something else so i can send mails from my forum and avoid to go to junk folders?

    Thanks

    Mandrill is not free?

    Cloudflare offer just the option to add an MX record or they provide an MX record that they own to use?

    Thanks

    Mandrill is free for first 12,00 Email sent every month.
    For me, I was sending 40K+ per month and paying just $4 USD+ / month.

    Mail provider will give you that, just like mandrill.
    Edit: You must also purchase a single email for your domain from any email hosting like namecheap.

    i will send about 80.000 and if it is only 8$ is fine :)

    But does it send them fast?

    How long for your 40k to send?

    I'm not sending those 40K as mass email.
    Just regular forum email.

    Yes mandrill is really fast and reliable but if you send mass mail, mostly they will divide it and queue some of it.

    Mass mail for 40K will cost you 4 USD I think.
    It's $5 USD: http://mandrill.com/pricing/

    They have the option to add an MX record and spf record but they do not provide any settings as i think they will not have mail servers or for another reason maybe :(

    the settings you have to provide yourself based on what mail service you use, i.e. Google App, Outlook, etc. Same with SPF record it's mail provider specific i.e. for Outlook you can see my example where they provide the SPF/text records needed at sign up of Outline Live domains http://centminmod.com/outlook_live_domains.html

    ah yes that, you need @yourdomain.com emails to have correct DKIM/SPF TXT records for that
