v=spf1 include:aspmx.googlemail.com ~all

is this correct?
'aspmx.googlemail.com:v=spf1 a mx ~all:3600

or should I use my own domain?
'myowndomain.com:v=spf1 a mx ~all:3600

or should I include this all from OpenSPF.org wizard as shown below in the codes?
# myowndomain.com's MX Servers

@myowndomain.com::aspmx.l.google.com.:10:86400

@myowndomain.com::alt1.aspmx.l.google.com.:20:86400

Okay, I haven't used either tinydns or djbdns, but shouldn't it be:

'myowndomain.com:v=spf1 include:aspmx.googlemail.com ~all:3600

The idea being to give us a record for your own domain that replies with that text string when you run:

nslookup -q=txt myowndomain.com

Or:

dig myowndomain.com txt
