I was in dnsstuff.com and I was doing one of their test and it states that I do not have a SPF record.  How do I add an SPF record.  I use networksolutions.com and they host my dns records.  is there a way to add these records at networksolutions.

thanks

I am not certain that Network Solutions will allow you to add an SPF record.

To add an SPF record, you need to add a TXT record to your DNS entry that defines the machines that send mail for that domain.

For examples see http://www.zytrax.com/books/dns/ch9/spf.html

I use SPF, but I use www.zoneedit.com to manage my domains, and i added it by selected the advanced option, adding a TXT record, then adding my SFP string.

I just called Network Solutions, and indeed they do not support SPF records. The tech said they do not plan to until it is required for SPF records to be present. LAME!
