How do you setup and apply a SPF (Sender Policy Framework) record?

I send mail from one mail server with a public IP address that is tied to one domain.  Lately, some of the other companies I email have been rejecting my email due to my DNS not having an SPF record.  I realize that in most SPAM filters you can allow exceptions to not check the SPF record, but I would rather learn how to correctly set this up on my end.

I did some research on the Internet i.e. 'googled' it and I am still fuzzy on where you set the record up at.

Thank You

    You can use the Sender ID Framework SPF Record Wizard by Microsoft... It's very easy to follow the directions you will find there...
