Hi Community!

I’m brand new to, apologies if this is frequently asked.

Hey Adam,

When you verify your domain for sending emails from, we ask that you place our required DNS records in your account-specific subdomain and should not affect your regular email sending from your Google workspace. 


This section of our help documentation on domain authentication goes over this in more detail:


Hope this is helpful in clarifying this! :)
