How to configure SPF records

SPF (Sender Policy Framework) allows you to specify in the TXT DNS records domain settings addresses from which you can send mail to prevent e-mail spoofing.

Here is an example of adding SPF records:

v=spf1 +a +mx -all
v=spf1 ip4: ip4: +a +mx -all

Where, v=spf1 is the SPF version,
ip4:ADDRESS The IP address from which you can send mail,
+a allows receiving mail from addresses that are specified in A-records of the domain,
+mx allows mail reception if the address is specified by the MX record of the domain,
-all reject all other messages that failed verification.
+all accept.
~all accept as spam.
