How Do I setup SPF (Sender Policy Framework) within DNS

Hi Guys,

I need to setup a SPF (Sender Policy Framwork) within my Windows 2003 DNS server. As many domains like will bounce back emails from my domain because i do not have one. I understand why AOL etc do this, to help try prevent spam etc.

So could someone please let me know how to set it up?
