Verification of the sender's email address is a prerequisite for sending an email campaign. When you have multiple senders on the same domain, this verification allows you to save your time by verifying your whole domain instead of verifying each sender's email address. Freshworks CRM allows multiple verified domains.
Here’s how you can add and verify a Domain on Freshworks CRM:
Go to Admin Settings and click Domain Verification. This opens the page where you can verify your domain settings.
Click “Add new domain”. This brings up a dialog box where you can add your Domain name, and sender email address.
Add your Domain name, Primary Sender Name, and Primary Sender Email Address and click next. It takes you to the Configure page where you can find the DNS record.
Copy the Freshworks CRM DNS records from the Configure page. Click copy on the Host and Value for all the records.
The following DNS verification records are provided by Freshworks CRM:

Based on your provider, the verification may take up to 48 hours. You can check the status of each record from the status column as shown below. Until all the records are verified, the status of the domain will be shown as Pending. After verification, the status will be displayed as Verified.
You can set multiple domains and can choose a primary domain for your campaigns. With this, you can have any number of custom emails as you want.
Editing and deleting a verified domain:
