I’m new to Netlify, and I’ve encountered an issue with authenticating the emails from my domain name after hosting the website on Netlify DNS.
Domain name: www.civilmedia.io OR 'civilmedia.netlify.app"
Domain name provider: Google Domains
The issue is as follows. I purchased the domain name above from google domains. Since I’m hosting on Netlify, I set custom name servers on my Google Domain console to point to the Netlify name servers. Additionally, I’ve added the MX records from the Google domain name to my Netlify DNS records. As a result, I am able to send emails to email@example.com (the email account registered with my Domain Name) with no issue.
I noticed recently, however, that when firstname.lastname@example.org sends a message to ME, the message comes with the following warning: “Gmail couldn’t verify that the civilmedia.io actually sent this message (and not a spammer)”.
A red question mark appears instead of our logo in the email header area.
My question is - how can I authenticate emails that come from my custom Google domain while still using Netlify DNS to host my website?
I’m sure I’m just being naive and there’s a simple solution to this, but so far I’ve spent a number of hours searching for other users who have encountered this issue to no avail. I would sincerely appreciate any advice you can offer!
