I need to set up SPF on my exchange server.  This exchange server is also our ADDC, DNS server.  I went to the website to get the info for the DNS entry but it is not working.  My internal domain is mydomain.local.  And my DNS Foward Lookupzones are _msdcs.mydomain.local and mydomain.local.    
Were do i have to add this txt file?  I assume something is wrong....  I dont really understand DNS too well.  My email serer is mail.myinternetdomain.com.  Any info would be great.  If someone would have a video on how to do it would be great!  (just thinking positive)
