Exchange 2003 Email SPF record

I did a DNSreport on dnsstuff.com and i got this warning..

Your domain does not have an SPF record. This means that spammers can easily send out E-mail that looks like it came from your domain, which can make your domain look bad (if the recipient thinks you really sent it), and can cost you money (when people complain to you, rather than the spammer). You may want to add an SPF record ASAP, as 01 Oct 2004 was the target date for domains to have SPF records in place (Hotmail, for example, started checking SPF records on 01 Oct 2004).

I have actually noticed that this is happening.

We are using MS Exchange 2003. Can anyone explain to me how i can go about doing this.

It is a case of simply adding a TXT record to the DNS for your domain.

http://old.openspf.org/wizard.html is a good wizard which helps you to work out what the contents need to be.
