I need to add two domains permitted to send as my domain. What is the format for doing two "includes" in an SPF record. My current format is "v=spf1 ip4:myIPrange mx include:domain1.com a:mydomain.org ~all". What is the format for adding include:domain2.com?
Thanks

what is wrong with
v=spf1 ip4:myIPrange mx include:domain1.com include:domain2.com a:mydomain.org ~all   ?

Just make sure that both domain1.com and domain2.com have SPF records.

Thanks. I can't say for sure that they do. One (cmail1.com) needs to send a newsletter as us, the other is Symantec (symantecmail.net) who does our outbound filtering. I'm just not well-versed in writing SPF records and wasn't sure of the format to use. What if I use what you suggested, but one or both of the domains don't have an SPF?
Thanks

they both have spf records (you can check it yourself http://tools.bevhost.com/cgi-bin/dnslookup).
