I went to www.dsnstuff.com and ran a check on my domain.
The report indicates that I do not have a SPF record.
I ran the SPF wizard from Microsoft's website
http://www.microsoft.com/mscorp/safety/content/technologies/senderid/wizard/

I am not that knowledgable to be able to answer all of the questions.
I am running Windows 2000 Server and Exchange Server 2000.

Hi,

Not a direct answer to your question but youcould also visit www.openspf.org to get the spf records sorted out simply. There is a wizard there as well.

For the MS link above, you need to know the following and assuming you are part of a network with an email system.

It is fat easier than the MS wizard.

What is the answer to these questions?
a:
mydomain.com's IP address is xx.xx.xxx.98 (server.host.net).
Does that server send mail from estate-plan.com?


mx:
This wizard found 2 names for the MX servers for mydomain.com: mail and yy.host.net. (A single machine may go by more than one hostname. All of them are shown.)
MX servers receive mail for mydomain.com.
Do they also send mail from mydomain.com?

ptr:
Do you want to just approve any host
whose name ends in mydomain.com? (Expensive, unreliable and not recommended)
