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 AOL.com 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?

Regards

Go to www.dnstuff.com - have it run a report against your domain name.  It will check for this and if not present, will provide links to instructions for creating the SPF record (I just did this myself a couple days ago).

You can also go to MXToolBox and do the same as well as setup a FREE account to monitor your  MX setup: http://www.mxtoolbox.com/spf.aspx

You can also goto http://www.openspf.org/ and do the same without setting up an account. It is one of the most comprehensive SPF sites around. Loads of info on how SPF works and other tools.
