Verifying Email Domain

The emails you sent to your customers are almost as important as the services you offer. Emails talk for your brand. If they’re composed professionally, they can drastically increase your brand loyalty.

In Smartjobboard by default, to protect your emails from being treated as spam, all emails are sent from [site-name]@mysmartjobboard.com email address.

However, you can configure your Smartjobboard website the way, so that all outgoing emails will be sent from your domain name. 

If you wish your emails to be sent from your own email address, then you will need to verify the ownership of your domain name.

To do so, please navigate to your admin panel > System settings > General Settings and in Site Email field enter your email address.

Next, click “Verify Domain” button and create DNS records mentioned in a pop-up in your Domain Hosting provider. If you feel that you need more assistance with creating DNS records, please contact your Domain Hosting provider and ask them to create the DNS records for you.

Please note: You can't verify Yahoo, Gmail etc domain names, as you can't own them. You can verify only the corporate domain names you actually own.
