HubSpot requires special configuration actions outside of Authenticate. Please follow steps 1-3 to complete configuration for HubSpot, and then return to your automation-guided task list in Authenticate in step 4


1. It is not necessary to add HubSpot as an 'Approved Sender' because the service uses a dedicated subdomain that will be delegated to HubSpot servers. HubSpot will then publish an SPF record on that subdomain.

 

2. Sign in to your HubSpot account and generate CNAME records for SPF and DKIM by following these steps:

 

    For SPF:

  • In your HubSpot account, click the settings icon settings in the main navigation bar.
  • In the left sidebar menu, click Domains & URLs.
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Advanced Options.
  • Click Copy SPF record to copy the record to your clipboard. You can now add this value to your DNS. 
  • Note: You can find more detailed information about the setup process by checking the add HubSpot to you SPF record article on the HubSpot site.

 

    For DKIM:

  • In your HubSpot account, click the settings icon settings in the main navigation bar.
  • In the left sidebar menu, navigate to Website > Domains & URLs.
  • Click Connect a domain.
  • In the dialog box, select Email Sending, then click Connect. You'll then be directed to the domain connection screen.

  • On the domain connection screen, enter the email address you use to send marketing emails from this domain, then click Next. 
  • On the next screen, verify that the email sending domain is correct, then click Next. 
  • Note: You can find more detailed information about the setup process by checking the HubSpot connect your email sending domain article.


3. Publish the first CNAME record in your DNS, this will allow HubSpot to publish an SPF record for the selected subdomain.


4. Add HubSpot as a Sender in the Authenticate platform by clicking on Add Sender and selecting it from the dropdown menu. 


Note:  If the Hub ID you were provided with is 123456.spf00.hubspotemail.net, fill in the HubSpot ID and SPF ID fields below:
