Technical Setup Guide

Christy Cook Updated by Christy Cook

This setup guide, designed for configuring advanced options for your use of DailyStory, requires some IT or technical knowledge. If this doesn't describe you, just  drop us a note and we can help.

Add a custom subdomain

Setting up a subdomain enables content hosted by DailyStory, such as your landing page, to appear as part of your domain.

Send from your email address

Unless configured, email sent on your behalf by DailyStory will use one of DailyStory's email domains.

This means that people that receive your email will see the message as coming from:

Anna Jones <> on behalf of DailyStory

But more importantly, the SPF and DKIM records that verify that the sender is allowed to send on behalf the domain will fail. This can have a significant impact on the deliverbility of your email as some email server will reject or flag your message as SPAM.

We recommend setting up integration with Mailgun.
