I need to setup a new SPF record for the following situation ...

Mail is sent from an exchange server (public IP) but relayed through a relay server which sends the mail out through one of four servers,,,, or What would the SPF record be for this situation?

    Each host that will send mail for your domain would need the SPF record. In your scenario, mail1 thru mail4 would need an SPF record.

    The one I listed above works, is that what you mean by each would require it's own? Or do you means I would need a separate record for each?

    If you haven't used it, try Microsoft's tool for creating your SPF Records.

    It is correct.

    Curious why you're including the SPF for, the servers listed in their SPF need to send as your domain as well?
