  4. Enable SMS function
  5. Registering payment cards

Step 1: Set spf and dkim

Setting up the Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is easy and takes only a few minutes. This is a setting that increases the chances of your newsletters ending up in the recipient's inbox instead of being flagged as spam. In short, it is a system to increase e-mail security and prevent others from sending e-mail in your name. With SPF in place, your domain determines who has the right to use your domain as the sender. Organisations ' public services (such as e-post And webbplatser) and individual computers are usually accessed using the domain name. When you send emails via Rule, delivery ability increases by "agreeing" that our server sends emails in your name. Example: nyhetsbrev@dittföretag.se. Read more about SPF här.

Since the change should be made on your domain name, you will need to log in to your DNS hosting, such as Loopia.se which we use in this example. It is usually the IT department internally who has an eye on the company's domain and can assist with setting up SPF or check that it is set up correctly.

  • Log in to your DNS and select the domain name that you want to use as the sender.
  • Click DNS Editor.
  • Click "Add Record".
  • Select the type "TXT"
    TTL (Time to live) determines how often the value is checked in seconds, the default is 3600 and it is just fine.
  • In the Data box, add the following:v=spf1 a mx include:_spf.rulemailer.com ~all
  • If you also have other mail servers, which you use to send mail in your name, it is good that you add them as well.

Rule supports DKIM and to put it up, you need to add a CNAME.

A Canonical Name record (abbreviated CNAME record) is a type of resource record in the domain name system (DNS) that is used to indicate that a domain name is an alias for another domain (the canonical domain) in your DNS. 

The following is added:

keyse._domainkey.xxx.se pointing to keyse._domainkey.rulemailer.se

xxx.se =your domain, for example. alright.se

See here:

1. Click "Add subdomain" and fill in: Subdomain: keyse._domainkey

2. Select CNAME and then Data: keyse._domainkey.rulemailer.se

In order to test that the system is correctly in place, you can use the denna information.

Step 2: Set up sender information

  • In the main menu, click Settings to set the sender information. The data is used to prepopulate the sender and footer in your mailings (see picture below). 
  • Note that it is also possible to set senders manually for individual mailings, but we recommend filling in the correct sender information initially, to save time in your campaign work.

Step 3: Set up integrations to Google Analytics & Triggerbee

  • Rule has ready-made integrations against Google Analytics and Triggerbee. You're canceling these here. 
  • Note that Triggerbee tracking assumes that you have an account with them

Step 4: Enable SMS functionality

The SMS function in Rule has almost endless uses. With mobile campaigns, you'll get closer to your customers and get an unprecedented opening grade on your mailings. The advantage is also to reach the customer before visiting the store or arena and the message may also include a product experience before visiting you physically or digitally. 

Cost of registration is a one-time fee of 1.150 SEK and is activated via our service department. Please describe your case to us at support@rule.se Get quick help to get started with SMS mailings. Activating the SMS function makes the Rule's support for you.

Step 5: Register payment cards

  • Go to Settings and then click the Admin tab (see figure below).

  • Then click the Add Card button and fill in the card information. 

  • To set the subscription plan, select one of the following options:

  • For those who have an existing account with Rule: Note that you must have Super Admin permissions to access this setting. 
  • For those of you who are a new customer: Registering as a customer by entering a debit card is a convenient way to get flexibility in their Rule usage. You can seamlessly register as a new customer to get started quickly. As a card customer, you can also switch your subscription plan and add and remove new users as needed.
  • For those of you who are an invoice customer: The possibility to register a debit card also applies to invoice customers, provided that you have been approved via Rule Communication.
