A SPF record shows people you're sending to that you're allowed to send.  It's so your mail goes through, not to prevent spam.

Here's all the details:

A standard SPF record is as follows:

v=spf1 mx -all

This tells servers that check SPF records: Mail being sent from is allowed to be sent by a server located at the same IP address as the MX record (, for instance, your Exchange server).  Do not trust any mail sent from anything except my one host (
